Support Over Christmas

Support Over Christmas 2019

Christmas can be a difficult time for some families – and it can be hard to know who to contact over the festive period if you are in need of some advice, support or information. Some organisations – including West Berkshire SENDIASS – are closed for the festive period from 22nd December and reopen on 2nd of January. Others run a reduced service or adjust their helplines’ opening times.

In an emergency, please contact West Berkshire Council’s Emergency Duty Team on 01344 786543. Visit their website for more information:

Although helplines may be closed if you are just looking for information it may still be possible to find this by visiting an organisation’s website. Sometimes these organisations also have on-line forums so it may be possible to get in touch with other parents and carers. Our website has a number of factsheets relating to all aspects of SEND. Use 'Search this site' box in the top right corner or browse our resources from the menu above.

We’ve also produced an information sheet containing alternative contact numbers of other organisations that can provide information, support and advice, plus some top tips for managing over Christmas. You can view and download our information sheet here:
