Ask Us and the IRIS Project are part of the Information and Advice Support Service (IASS) for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire

Ask Us offer one-to-one advice on a range of topics, including education, EHCPs and welfare while IRIS provides information on local events, groups and news to help young people with additional needs, as well as parents of children with SEND.

Both Ask Us Nottinghamshire and the IRIS Project are managed by Futures. We have a long history of supporting the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This includes having worked in partnership with the two local authorities (Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council) for over 25 years to deliver support services to schools including mainstream, special and independent schools, as well as supporting young people not in education, employment or training (NEET).
