A new support service will be operating from 16th September 2013. The Empowering Families project targets parents and carers of young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) who have a realistic chance of making the transition from full-time learning to employment and/or training. The aim is to help parents and carers to improve their knowledge and take part in the assessment, planning and provision of support under the Government’s new arrangements.

You can obtain information through the reachfor website; contact a Virtual Adviser for advice or ring the helpline to speak to someone:
