Shropshire IASS – Information for young people
Are you aged 25 or under? Are you disabled or do you have special educational needs?
Special educational needs are when you need extra support to learn things. The law says that you can get information, advice and support.
You can come to us if you want some help with getting the right kind of:
- support at school, college, or training
- health services
- care and support
- preparing for adulthood
Our service is impartial which means we will not tell you what to do.
We will not take sides and our service is confidential. This means our meetings are private and we will only tell people what we talk about if you say it is ok.
We will give you the information and support you need to make your own choices.
