Social Care Referrals and Assessments

Services and Support » Social Care » Social Care Referrals and Assessments

Helping children and young people with social care needs which relate to their Special Education Needs or to a disability (SEND).

We ensure that all families with a child with Special Educational Needs are offered information, advice and support to access appropriate mainstream and community services.

You can read more about the types of support available on our Local Offer pages here: Early Help Service

We also work with children where their Special Educational Needs are impacting on their learning, wellbeing, relationships and recreational opportunities.

You can ask us for an assessment of your child or your needs as a parent/carer. 

You can telephone us on 0191 433 2653 – Monday to Friday between 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
