SEND support groups

The following links are for some ideas of SEND support groups we have found in the local area that you may want to try. We try update and monitor these links regularly but do check with the places before visiting that they are still running these sessions just in case!


Additionally if you know of any places or ideas, please drop Ellie an email on so that this can be shared with other parents!
