Who we are

 The South East region SEND network (self-named 'SE19' after our membership) is set up to support service development and provision for children and young people in line with the 2014 Children and Families Act.

We include all stakeholders: education, health, social care, parent carers and young people.

We operate through peer support as well as running regional events, workshops and training on topics which are identified throughour regional Steering Group, members of the network and national bodies. 

Governance is through the SE19 Steering Group, chaired by Steve Crocker (DCS Hampshire). Membership is made up of Local Authority SEND Leads together with representation from National Network of Parent Carer Forums and NHS England (South East).
