We are an organisation which specialises in improving and developing services and provision for children and young people with SEND.


Send4change was established in April 2014 at a time when there was significant change in the world of SEN and disability. We are dedicated to supporting organisations, settings, schools and colleges in managing this to bring about the change and improvements which are required.

We have brought together a team of specialists with a wide range of knowledge and vast experience in SEND.


We support organisations across the country. The team is able to respond quickly, flexibly and creatively to meet the financial challenges and cultural changes which they face in delivering SEND services.
