CENMAC is a team of specialists who support children and young people to access the curriculum and/or to communicate using assistive technology.

Located at Charlton Park Academy in South-East London, CENMAC is a unique service offering assessments, reviews and the loan of assistive technology (AT) and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

We work across the Greater London area, with children and young people aged 2 to 25 with Education Health Care Plans (EHCP) in mainstream education, special schools, and those who are home educated.

Make a referral.

We support children and young people in the following local authorities:

  • Bromley
  • Ealing
  • Greenwich
  • Hammersmith & Fulham
  • Havering
  • Hounslow
  • Lambeth
  • Merton
  • Richmond
  • Southwark
  • Wandsworth

If you live in Greater London but not in one of these boroughs, we might still be able to help you. Sometimes boroughs or schools will pay for a private assessment or individual packages through a service level agreement.

Support is ongoing and can be maintained for as long as required. Reviews of both support and equipment are held a minimum of once a year.
