Cheshire East’s Information, Advice and Support (CEIAS) team provide confidential, free and impartial advice and support to both the parents/carers of children with SEND and to young people aged 16+ in their own right.
Our key aim is to empower parents/carers and young people by giving them relevant, up to date information and advice with regard to SEND so that they can make informed decisions and can work effectively with educational settings, local authority staff and other key professionals in ensuring the best outcomes for the child or young person.
