About us

nasen (National Association for Special Educational Needs) is a membership charity organisation that supports all education practitioners. We provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD), resources, advice, information and much more to enable all staff to meet the needs of all their pupils.

nasen manages the Whole School SEND (“WSS”) Consortium, a group of individuals and organisations, committed to improving provision and outcomes for children and young people with SEND. The WSS Consortium delivers the contracts for the Department for Education to support schools and settings to identify and meet needs of pupils with a view to improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND. This includes the recently awarded Universal Services contract from 2022-2025.

About Whole School SEND

The Whole School SEND (WSS) Consortium is part of a growing member community committed to improving provision and outcomes for children and young people with SEND.  The work of the consortium is based on the principle that the knowledge and expertise needed to develop the workforce already exists in the system and that knowledge exchange can occur through effective collaboration.

From 2016 to 2022, the Department for Education funded the Whole School SEND Consortium to build capacity in the system through a strategic, school-led, review-based approach.  We have recently been awarded the DfE’s ‘Universal SEND Services’ contract which runs from 2022-25, and in the delivery of which our Regional SEND Leaders play a crucial role.

Since its inception in 2016, the WSS member community has grown to more than 20,000 schools, practitioners, policy influencers, charitable organisations, parents, children and young people. It has brought together key stakeholder organisations from across the SEND community and encouraged collaboration between them.
