Service description:
The National Sensory Impairment Partnership (NatSIP) is a unique national partnership of professionals and voluntary organisations working with children and young people with sensory impairment (SI) and their families.

The agreed purpose of NatSIP is:

• to improve educational outcomes for children and young people with sensory impairment, closing the gap with their peers, through joint working with all who have an interest in the success of these young people
• to help children achieve more and fulfil the potential of children and young people who have SI
• to promote a national model for the benchmarking of clear progress and impact criteria for children and young people who have SI
• to support a well-trained SI workforce responsive to the Government agenda for education
• to inform and advise the DfE and other national agencies on the education of children and young people with SI
• to promote collaboration between services, schools, professional bodies and voluntary bodies working with children and young people who have SI
• to promote collaborative working between education, health and social care professionals in the interest of children and young people who have SI

The greatest assets of NatSIP are the members of the workstreams who have driven forward an agenda for change in the SI field. Members of LA SI services and school provision, specialist schools (in the maintained and non-maintained sectors) and SI voluntary and professional organisations have worked together to produce guidelines and frameworks which address current national issues specific to outcomes for SI children and young people.
