General SEND Leaflet picture
Information, advice and support for children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities and their parents or carers.

The local authority must make arrangements for children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities and their parents, and young people with SEN or Disabilities, to be provided with impartial information and advice about matters relating to their SEN or Disabilities.

Wirral SEND Partnership is an impartial, independent and confidential service which gives free information, advice and support about matters relating to Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.

The service is for parents or carers of children aged 0-25, and young people aged 16-25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities. They can self-refer or can ask someone else to refer on their behalf. Young people (aged 16-25) can ask for support separately from their parents/ carers if they wish.

The service gives practical, factual and impartial information advice and support to enable you to participate fully in decisions about education, health and social care. This can include:

  • Face-to-face meetings
  • Contact by telephone, email or social media
  • Support in meetings with other professionals
  • Help with letter writing or form-filling
  • Appointments at a place to suit you
  • Information about other services
  • Information is available in a range of languages and formats if needed

The information advice and support can be about any issue related to special educational needs or disability including:

  • Wirral’s ‘Local Offer’ of services
  • Educational Support
  • Education Health & Care Plans
  • Preparation for adulthood
  • Personal Budgets/Direct payments
  • Disagreement resolution/ Mediation
  • Separate leaflets available explaining each of these subjects in more detail can be downloaded from our website or are available on request.
