Connexions support for young people and their families

We work together with:

  • young people
  • their families
  • and other professionals such as schools and social workers to plan transition from school.

Connexions SEND advisers

Connexions SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) advisers are trained to work with young people with learning difficulties or disabilities.

We help young people and their families make decisions about their future.

There is a SEND adviser linked to each special school.

If your child has an Educational, Health and Care (EHC) Plan, we can help them up to the age of 25. We can work with other young people up to 19 years old.
