Proposed changes to the Law for children and young people with SEN in Wales

As the biggest overhaul of the SEN system of the last thirty years is being proposed, it is essential that the changes being developed improve the provision of support for children and young people across education, social care and health services and creates a system that is transparent and clear to all.

The reforms must be developed and introduced in a way that is achievable for local authorities across Wales while making sure that CYP and their families can benefit as soon as possible.

Education for All

Encouraging Partnership – since 1986 SNAP Cymru has worked with families and professionals in schools, education, health and social care to help ensure that children and young people’s needs are identified, assessed and provision made to help them reach their potential and be fully included.

Listening to Children – Staff and volunteers work with families and professionals, supporting children and young people to participate in planning and decision making which affects them, advocating where appropriate.

Giving Families a Voice - SNAP Cymru raise awareness of issues related to SEN, Disability, and other barriers to inclusion including: exclusion from school and education, disengagement from education, employment or training, poverty, deprivation, English or Welsh as a second language.

With offices all over Wales offering help and advice when you need it most, our local knowledge can help guide you through the differing implementations of the support and services offered by your local authority and by other charitable organisations.
