Contact Us


If you can’t find the information you need, or you would like to talk your situation through, there are three ways to get in touch with us: using our contact form, sending an email or calling us.

Professional enquirers: Please email us at devonias@devon.gov.uk. We don’t take referrals directly from professionals. But if you’re supporting a parent or carer who would like information or advice from us, and they’ve given you permission to do so, you can help them to fill out the form below. 


  • Fill out our form to ask for support – We are having some technical issues with our contact form which we are trying hard to fix. For now, please use email if possible or call the main enquiry line. If you made a request for support after 14th March, and you haven’t heard from us, please email or call to ask for support again. We’re sorry for any difficulties this might have caused.

    If you would like support with a special educational needs issue, please click on the link and fill out the form. We ask you for some basic information at this stage so that we can give you the right support in the right way. You can ask a professional to fill the form out with you.
