Doncaster SENDIAS provides information, advice and support (IAS) to parents, carers, children and young people in relation to Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disability and related health and social care issues.
Doncaster SENDIAS service would like to let families know that we are still open and here for you. However, during the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak we are following UK government advice to ensure that we maintain safe and effective working practices.
We are continuing to offer a service and SENDIAS officers are available daily to provide information, advice and support. The main difference to the service delivery is that all face-to-face meetings, outreach work and visits have been temporarily suspended.
Wherever possible alternatives means are being used to keep everyone in touch and for business to carry on as usual; for example, by telephone call, email, conference calls, and online meetings. Our online referral service is open and active through this Doncaster SENDIAS webpage or you can contact us through our Facebook messenger.
We will ensure up-to-date information is available on our website and through social media to help provide as much support as possible to our families at this time. In the next few days, we will also link with Doncaster Parents Voice (DPV) to see how we can work together to support communities and individuals.
We understand that these are very challenging times, however your patience and understanding during this time is greatly appreciated.
Please keep in touch.
If you are a child or young person with a special educational need or a disability (SEND), or the parent of a child or young person with SEND, then we are here for you.
Our service is FREE of charge and the information and advice we offer is impartial and confidential.
