Empowering Families

Special Educational Needs and Disability Information Advice and support Service, SENDIASS  Newham(formerly Parent Partnership Services), is a statutory service designed to support parent/carers, children and young people 0-25, with issues relating to their special educational needs and disability (SEND) rights and provision.  The support offered is free, impartial and confidential, as the service works at arms-length from the local authority (LA).  Support is given electronically, telephone and face to face meetings.  SENDIASS will not share parent, carer, or young persons information with other professionals, unless we have explicit consent or there is a safeguarding issue.

How do SENDIASS help?

  • Knowledge, advice and support based on SEND statutory process and duties
  • Advice and support around SEN Support and all aspects of the education, health and care plan (EHCP).
  • Exclusions (where the pupil has an SEN).
  • SEND Tribunal cases
  • Meeting support.

If you are a parent/carer, child, young person or professional in need of advice or support please call: 0203 373 0707 or email

Please be aware that SENDIASS is a self-referral service, therefore we require service users to contact us themselves, unless there are extenuating circumstances which prevent the parent/carer or young person from accessing the service independently.
