New SEND guide for parents and carers

Primary interest
Families and Parenting

A new quick and easy guide for parent carers of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities has just been launched by BFfC in collaboration with a number of partners.

The 12-page SEND Guide for Parents aims to help families access information on local SEND services and direct them to where they can find help and support. The guide answers frequently asked questions covering topics such as childcare, help at home, support at school, benefits eligibility and assistance for parent carers. It is available to view and download on the SEND Local Offer now.
