We have added a number of information resources on a range of SEND topics for individuals, parents/carers and professionals.  We'll be adding more useful handouts to this section over time.  Please click on the headings below to find out more:

Useful Information

Princes Trust

We believe that every young person should have the chance to embrace exciting opportunities. So, we help 11 to 30 year-olds to find the tools and confidence to try free courses and start careers. 

Gateshead young carers 

We believe that young carers should have a life of their own alongside their caring role. Being a young carer shouldn't prevent children and young people from having time to themselves, making friends, being happy and healthy or having the same opportunities as their peers.

Childline

Childline is here to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they’re going through.

You can talk about anything. Whether it’s something big or small, our trained counsellors are here to support you.

Young Minds

We want to see a world where no young person feels alone with their mental health, and all young people get the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what.

Barnardos: Supporting Children and young people experiencing loss 

We are making sure vital support is available. Every year, we work with children and young people who are dealing with loss, bereavement and grief through our UK-wide services.

NDCS The Buzz

The only website for deaf young people aged 8 to 18 in the UK. This safe, online space, created by deaf young people, is entirely yours. You can read inspiring stories, connect with other deaf young people, find the latest information and support, sign up to events, ask questions and get involved.

Kooth | Home 

Kooth is an online counselling and emotional well-being platform for children and young people, accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop and free at the point of use.

Mind Your Words

The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists have developed some free, online training to ‘improve understanding of children and young people who have both mental health needs (or social emotional and mental health needs – SEMH) and speech, language and communication needs (SLCN’).

 

The Gateshead Autism Information Hub is available to anyone with an interest in autism – parents/carers/family members, professionals, practitioners, or individuals with autism, with or without a diagnosis.
