Information, Advice and Support
All local authorities must, by law, provide an information, advice and support service to support families who want to know more about SEND. This is an impartial, confidential and free service for parents, children and young people, which provides advice about all aspects of SEND support. In Bath and North East Somerset this is the SENDIAS BathNES.
There are also a number of local SEND support groups, caring and mentoring groups, online groups, training sessions and events to support children and young people with SEND and their families, have a look at our services and organisations section, and the below information:
