Council launches new website for Walsall families with children which have special educational needs and disabilities.
Walsall Council has launched a new website to help parents and carers of children and young people (aged 0-25) with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), as part of the SEND Local Offer.
The new website includes information about the range of services Walsall Council provides to support all areas of children’s lives, to give them the best start in life, especially for those children and young people with special education needs and/or disabilities.
The website is a hub of information where parents and carers can find out about help with learning, money and financial support, and information about preparing for independence and adulthood.
There is also information about local things to do and get involved with, and an opportunity to feedback about the SEND services provided by the council.
“ I encourage Walsall parents and carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities to look through the new website and access some information about the help and support available to children and young people, but also the people who look after them too.
There is a whole host of guidance and information available, including information about local support groups which can be a great help to parents and carers, when navigating their own journeys. “
