Don't forget, waste collections will be a day later than usual all this week after the spring bank holiday.

Qualified early years graduates support early years providers, including group settings and childminders, to develop effective inclusive practice for children aged 0 to 5. Inclusion Advisers have a high level of experience of working with young children, children with special educational needs, and their families.

We provide advice and practical support to all early years providers about early identification, and support for, young children with special educational needs and disabilities. We help facilitate their transition to a setting, and into compulsory schooling.

Through visits to settings, training, and local cluster meetings, we provide initial training and ongoing support to all staff in early years provision.

We work closely with the Area SENCO and Portage staff within the Early Years SEND Support Service. We also work with specialist Early Years Educational Psychologists, and other professional colleagues from within Education, Health, and Social Care.

Inclusion Advisers are part of the Early Years SEND Support Service.
