Guidance

This section houses lots of information and advice and signposts you to more specialist sources of guidance, support and useful documents.

Signposting

We are building a list of useful organisations and sources of support for young people and their families. Lots of this information is available to families on multiple websites and we are working with our partners and Family Information Service to find the most effective solution to sharing this information with Wiltshire families.

Carer support

All parents are carers. However, Wiltshire Council provides specific support for individuals who are caring for a young person with complex needs or a disability.

Money advice

We know that money can be a source of anxiety and frustration for all families so we are developing a list of sources of support and information on money and benefits, aimed specifically at families affected by special educational needs or disabilities.

Travel Support

Being able to get around independently can make all the difference to a young person with additional needs. From travel training and free bus passes, we are building a list of sources of support with traveling independently.

Useful documents

We aim to provide relevant information and documents to help professionals, parents, carers and young people.
