About Us


SENDIASS stands for Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Information Advice & Support Service.

At Hampshire SENDIASS we offer accurate, up to date and impartial resources and information about the law on special educational needs and disability. This covers:

•    Education, health and social care

•    National and local policy

•    The Local Offer

•    Your rights and choices

•    Your opportunities to participate

•    Where you can find help and advice

•    How you can access support

We provide information in many ways, including on this website, through publications or at training events and conferences.

Sometimes information is not enough. You may want help to gather information, make sense of it and apply it to your own situation. We call this advice and we offer this service by email, on the telephone and through work with groups. 

If you have checked our information and had advice but are unable to advocate for yourself without further support e.g. if your case is very complex or if you find it hard to communicate, Hampshire SENDIASS may be able to provide one-to-one support until you reach a stage where you feel able to proceed without our help.
