Sensory & Communication Support Service (SenCom)

SenCom is a service comprising three specialist teams.

We work with children and young people who have a speech, language, communication need or who have a hearing, vision or multisensory impairment.

The teams within SenCom provide a wide range of advice and intervention strategies including teaching. We are a person centred organisation and our levels of intervention are matched to the changing needs of individual children and young people.

We are hosted by Torfaen County Borough Council and work regionally in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen with children and young people, families, schools colleges and early year’s settings.

Our mission is to be a partner with families and schools in successfully including children and young people in all of school life and to ensure their learning journey meets no barriers to progress.

The Service is made up of three teams under the leadership of a Head of Service.
