Portsmouth SENDIASS can provide information, advice and support about education, health and social care. If you believe a child is in immediate danger you should call 999
Our Triage Officers are the first point of call for our service. They provide initial information and advice, making use of our extensive factsheets and signposting to other organisations. Our Advisors have advanced SEND legal training and so more complex or in-depth queries will be passed to them via our query database.
CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS
Please be aware that over the Christmas holidays Portsmouth SENDIASS will be running a reduced capacity service from 19th December – 23rd December and will be closed from 24th December – 3rd January.
