County Durham


Welcome to SENDA,

We are a small not-for-profit organisation based in County Durham.

SENDA was created after our founder faced multiple barriers when trying to help her child access appropriate education. There were many times she sat down and thought "I wish there was someone I could call; someone who would sit with me and tell me what I'm meant to do next..."

There was nothing and no-one locally who could provide this service. Initially our founder was frustrated by this, but soon realised she had the training, skills, and connections to build such a service. So SENDA was born, with a team of individuals committed to the health and wellbeing of young people, and their right to access education.
