Luton SENDIAS is proud to announce the virtual launch of their new improved service and new accessible website on Monday 20th July
Luton SEND Information Advice Support Service (SENDIAS) provides impartial and confidential information, support and advice for parents, carers, children and young people around issues relating to Special Education Needs and Disabilities.
The SENDIAS Service is a statutory service supported and funded by Luton Council and Luton Clinical Commissioning Group. The service is impartial and operates at ‘arms length’ from the Local Authority.
The service is now able to provide an all year-round flexible service which is open during normal office hours and includes face to face meetings, email service and a direct helpline with 24-hour answer machine. The trained officers are able to discuss through options available, the possible outcomes and help service users make an informed decision.
The new website supports the service by providing easily accessible information and guidance including a noticeboard for events alongside signposting to support groups. On the website there are some videos on a range of topics to support with SEN issues as well as other useful resources to help prepare for productive meetings at school and a helpful jargon buster.
Our SENDIAS Officers are keen to work with parent/carer support groups, local SEN groups, SEN youth forums, disability groups and support training events. Please do get in touch if you would like them to attend and promote the service to families and young people.
