nasen (National Association for Special Educational Needs)

nasen is the National Association for Special Educational Needs. It is a charitable membership organisation that exists to support and champion those working with, and for, children and young people with SEND and learning differences.

Rooted in research and evidence-informed best practice, information, training and resources ensure that our community members in the UK and across the globe are provided with the most up-to-date knowledge and support required to become effective, inclusive practitioners. They aim to contribute to the debate and effect change to improve outcomes for early years, schools, post-16 and wider settings and ultimately, the children and young people that they support.

They provide free resources and support for all members, leading targeted programmes and projects to deliver widespread improvements, offering a structured programme of professional development, accredited training and conferences as well as a package of SEND services throughout the UK and internationally. Their mission is to support the SEND workforce by ensuring they are fully equipped to meet the needs of learners with SEND.
