Liverpool & Knowsley SEND IASS needs your help!

Can you please spare a few minutes of your time to help them improve what we do? 

As part of a Department for Education funding initiative for a new Information, Advice and Support Program, Liverpool & Knowsley SEND IASS (special educational needs/disabilities, information, advice and support service) is gathering views from parents/carers, children/young people and professionals about your experience of their service and suggestions for future development.

Your views will help them to create a two-year development plan and apply for additional funding in March 2019. What you tell them will directly influence how they shape the future service.

All children & young people up to the age of 25 that complete the survey will be entered into a draw for the chance to win £50 vouchers for a venue or shop of your choice

If you would prefer a paper copy of this survey, an easy read version or to speak to somebody face-to-face please contact the service on 0800 012 9066 or via email at liverpoolandknowsleysend@wired.me.uk
