Support for children aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

How can I get involved?

We need to achieve real change in the culture of SEND services within the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area and we would like to hear from people across the community to help us do that. This can be as little, or as much time as you are able – we welcome all involvement.

If you’re interested in getting involved, all you need to do is email us at:

You can also contact one of the following parent/carer groups who we would like to thank for their valuable contribution, time and effort into helping shape our written statemen of action:

Dorset Children’s Foundation -

Doors Open

Parent Carer Foundation -

Parent Carers Together


Slades Farm Group

SWAN (Syndromes Without A Name) UK -

If you would like to share your views in the future, join one of the above groups or offer co-production support from your parent/carer group. 

Find out how to get involved in our local children and young people groups.
