We provide support and guidance on the types of care that may be available to help you and your child. We are also able to signpost you to organisations and services, both locally and nationally, and advise on how to access them.
Caring for a child with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) can be challenging. We want to help and support you by providing information, support and advice when you need it.
This service is for children and young people up to 25 years old with SEND. Our aim is to make sure that you receive social care services that best meet you and your child's needs and that you are fully involved in the process.
The Care Quality Commission's inspection reports can form part of your decision-making process. All reports are available on the CQC website and provide the regulator's judgement on whether a care service is meeting government standards of quality and safety. The CQC regulates all care homes, and agencies throughout England that provide care in the home (domiciliary care) including; NHS and private health services in hospitals or dentists.
Wherever and whenever you receive care it should meet government standards of quality and safety. It is the CQC's job as a regulator to check this.
