Families with disabled children face major challenges accessing the right care and support. To address these 9 national charities* came together as the SEND Consortium and launched a unique national service - SENDirect - to help disabled children, young people and their families to find and buy essential services.

Launched in early 2015, SENDirect offers:
• An online one-stop-shop for accessible services
• Information on quality and making positive choices
• Evidence around need and support to shape service development

SENDirect already lists more than 3500 services and is supporting over 500 organisations to help them connect with families.
