Further information and useful contacts

  • Coventry's SEND Local Offer provides information about activities, services and support available to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
  • The SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) provides impartial and accurate special educational needs and disability information, advice and support for parents/carers, children and young people up to 25 years of age.
  • The Coventry Family Information Directory also provides information on local childcare, activities and organisations for children and young people in Coventry.
  • Your local Family Hub provides a place where children, young people and their families can go when in need of help and support. The people working in the family hub will work in partnership with you and your community.

If you are unsure about the level of short break that you or your child or young person can access, you can contact Coventry's Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).

The MASH brings key professionals together to make sure that a child or young person gets access to the help that would benefit them the most. The MASH is also known as the 'front door' to social care. You can contact the MASH to request help for yourself or your child or young person in relation to a specific special education needs and disability issue.
