Barnsley SENDIASS is a service for parents, carers and young-people that's designed and led by parents, carers and young people.


Minimum standards 

We have the Minimum Standards for Information Advice and Support Services (IASS, sometimes known as SENDIASS). It inspires us to be led by our service users. To listen to your views, wishes and feelings and design the future of the service around you. 

The standards also expect us to have a steering group. Including key stakeholders, mainly, parents, carers and young people. Also from across the education, health and social care sector.
