Who are we and what do we do?

We're here for you . . .


  • If you're a parent/carer of a child or young person with special educational needs or a disability

  • If you're a young person with special educational needs or a disability 16-25

  • If you have an issue or concern in the areas of education, health or social care

  • If you live in Telford and Wrekin

  • If you think your child has or may have a special educational need


Accessing our service

We support parents and carers of children with a special educational need up to the age of 25. Once a young person reaches 16 it is a legal requirement that they become directly involved in making decisions themselves. Some young people still prefer to have close parent or carer support, some wish to be more independent.  We'll have a chat about this and decide which way is best for you.  If you're 16 or over, why not take look at all the information in our Young Persons Zone
