Some children find school extremely difficult without the educational support they need.

We understand how a child can suffer, because families tell us.

We understand the stress and worry, because families tell us.

Everyday SENAC hear from parents about their struggles to get the right support to meet their children's needs. This can mean endless forms, emails, calls, meetings, chasing responses and appealing decisions. Overwhelming, exhausting tasks while caring for your family.

I didn't know where to turn, it all became too much for us, for our child, and school had done their best, but our daughter needed specialist help. She couldn't go to school and was so sad and anxious. SENAC helped us take an appeal and we got the specialist support needed. It has made such a difference, our daughter is back in school and now doing well, we see it in her smiles when she comes home each day.

SENAC have been privileged to advise and support hundreds of parents and their children each year. We provide independent advice and information on the SEN system and give parents the knowledge and confidence it takes to voice their child's needs.

By joining our Go Your Own Way sponsored walk you too can make a difference.

Every step you take will give another child every chance to learn.

You go your own way. You choose the venue, date and time and set your own target. (1k is approx. 1390 steps) Walk round your garden or complete a 10k walk in the park. Complete your walk with friends, family or just you and your dog. Whichever you choose, we would truly welcome your support.

With summer approaching why not use this as motivation to get out and about in the many amazing places and scenic walks we have in Northern Ireland.

We just ask that you complete your challenge by the end of August.

We may be going our own way in our events, but we come together in our support of better resourcing and greater equality in education for our children.

Getting started could not be easier, simply click the orange Start Fundraising button on our page, set up your own fundraising page linked to ours and invite your friends, family and colleagues to support you. Your supporters will be able to donate and see how well you are doing.

If you cannot do a sponsored event but would still like to support SENAC, click on Give Now to give a one-off donation. Or you could choose to donate to one of our supporter's pages.

If you need any help or more information, please contact us at info@senac.co.uk
