Times vary during school holidays - please listen to our voicemail message for opening times.    

As we are a small service we may be away from our desks helping other people when you call so please leave a voicemail message (24 hours) or email.

We support children and young people age 0 - 25 with special educational needs and disabilities and their parents or carers. Please see our website link for leaflets and other information.
