The Service aims to provide a range of educational opportunities and additional resources for children with special educational needs to enable the child's needs to be met in an inclusive setting.

Early Help

Early Help is a way of thinking and working together between services with families that have additional, multiple or complex needs. Early Help is preventative, by providing support to families when a need is identified or as soon as a problem emerges at any point in a child’s life, from conception through to teenage years. It can also prevent further problems arising by building resilience with families to find their own solutions in the future.
