What is mediation?
Mediation is a way of helping people to reach an agreement about something they are not happy with.
Mediation only takes place if parents and young people want it.
What does the SEND Mediation Service do?
It helps to sort out disagreements about the needs of children and young people with special needs and disability.
Disagreements can be about education, health and care (EHC) assessments or EHC plan. They can also be about what happens at school or college and other problems.
