We are a collective voice for parents of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). We are a growing voluntary organisation run by a management committee of volunteer parent carers and supported by a part time paid member of staff based at North Yorkshire & York Forum.
The Parent Partnership service has now changed to SENDIASS - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information, Advice and Support Services. The SENDIASS Coordinators can offer impartial advice and support which could include making a home visit to listen to any concerns you may have, or attend meetings with you. They may also be able to put you in touch with other organisations or parent support groups.
A SENDIASS Co-ordinator can be contacted through North Yorkshire on 0845 034 9469.
