Caring for a child with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) can put a lot of strain on parents and families as a whole. Many families will need some help and support at different times.
As a parent of a child or young person with SEND you may not know where to turn to or you may be trying to cope with a whole range of feelings, as well as being exhausted from the physical demands of parenting. There is support out there.
This section is full of useful services and organisations that can provide support and advice to parents on arrange of different issues. This includes statutory social care services as well as voluntary and independent organisations.
