The Family Information Service SEND Framework

This national SEND Framework has been specifically developed for Family Information Services (FIS) in England. The aim of the framework is to help FIS prepare to meet the requirements of the Department for Education’s Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years, 2014.

FIS are well placed to help their local authorities to develop the Local Offer and provide information about personal budgets for children and young people, thus strengthening their role in providing information, advice and assistance to families.

This practical guide will take you through the new statutory duties of the Children and Families Act 2014; gives an overview of the new landscape for disability and SEN provision for children and young people; offers numerous FIS case studies and a practical SEND standards framework.
