Parent Partnership Service changes its name

18th September 2014

  • The Sheffield Parent Partnership Service has changed its name to Sheffield SEN and Disability Information, Advice and Support (SSENDIAS).

    The change in name reflects a change in remit; under the Children and Families Act 2014, local authorities now have a duty to provide an impartial information, advice and support service which covers education, health and social care across the whole 0-25 age range. Parent Partnership services previously only dealt with education-related issues, and only up to the age of 19.

    In addition, the new service will be able to provide information about leisure opportunities, disability benefits and support groups. It will be accessible not just to parents, but also to the children and young people themselves.

    You can contact the service on 0114 273 6009 or email
