About us

The Special Educational Needs Advice Centre (SENAC) is a regional charity set up in 2003. We provide confidential, independent advice and advocacy on behalf of children and young people with disabilities and special educational needs (SEN) attending schools in Northern Ireland.

SENAC places the focus on the needs of the child and works with parents, schools and education bodies to ensure that children receive the right support and resources according to their learning needs.

Donations Make a Huge Difference

Thanks to our funders and the generosity of the public SENAC have been able to provide a free service to parents since 2003. SENAC do not receive any statutory funding and are therefore very grateful for all donations, large or small.
