Wandsworth Information, Advice and Support Service

About you

First things first, about you……

Do you struggle with learning or taking part at school, sixth form or college? Do you have questions about your education, health, or social needs?

Have you been told you have special educational needs or a disability (SEND)?

Would you like free, confidential, information, advice, and support? If yes, then we might be the service to help you!

We are a service for you, if you are aged between 0 and 25 years old and live in the borough of Wandsworth (it does not matter where you go to school, sixth form, or college!).
