Lancashire SEND IAS

Lancashire SEND IAS

Information, advice and support for Special Educational Needs and Disability

SEND IAS volunteers

Lancashire SEND IAS is going to have a small team of volunteers who will work under the supervision of SEND IAS officers to support parents, carers, children and young people. Volunteers will follow the same confidentiality rules as SEND IAS officers and are impartial too.

All of our volunteers will be trained in special educational needs and disability (SEND) and are fully Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked. This means a check has been done to make sure they can work with vulnerable groups, such as young people.

Some of our volunteers will have also been trained to work directly with young people to provide advice and support. Volunteers in this role support young people in the decision-making process, and work with them to reach the goals they want to achieve.
