Face to Face Fridays

What are Face to Face Fridays?

The idea of Face to Face Fridays is to give parents and young people the opportunity to talk to us face to face via MS Teams.

At the end of April 2021, we launched Face to Face Fridays.  These are an opportunity for parents and young people to talk to a SEND Advice Surrey (SENDIAS) Advisor for an hour on a Friday in term time.

Slots bookable via emailing sendadvice@surreycc.gov.uk and are at 10am and 11am. You are of course able to book a call or a MS Teams conversation at anytime but on these Fridays there will be two Advisors booked to speak.

Reasons for booking a session

  • If you are worried about your child struggling at nursery or at school
  • What to know more about the EHCP process
  • Want to talk about mediation
  • Want to talk about how to appeal a decision by the LA

Basically, it could be anything about special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and education.

Talks for Professionals

We also attend events at this time so if you offering presentations or coffee mornings to parents we could come along and tell them about how we could advise and support them and can also answer any questions. So far we have attended Action for Carers, YMCA and NAS events.

Talks at Schools

If you are a School and have children with SEND you could also book a Face to Face Friday for Advisors to come along and talk.

How to book

To book a slot or to book us to attend one of your events please email sendadvice@surreycc.gov.uk  Slots are a maximum of an hour long.
