A new way of contacting SENDIASS

From the 16 January 2023, the current 396469 number will be changed to give callers two options of who they wish to speak to:

Option 1 will be through to the Families Information Service Hub Helpline Team

Option 2 will be to speak to SENDIASS.

If nobody is available to take your call (on either option), it will direct to voicemail where you can leave a message and one of the team will call you back.

For FISH enquiries you can email us at

For SENDIASS enquiries you can email them at or contact the national SEND helpline 0808 808 3555.
