Third sector professional, Enfield resident and mum, Lubna Reid decided to create SEN-den as a local community response to a national problem.

Lubna is SEN-den’s Founder, Director and Service Manager. She has 20 years of charity and social enterprise experience acquired in the UK and overseas.

How did it all begin? In the summer of 2019, having seen just how much friends were struggling to access support for their newly diagnosed autistic children, Lubna enlisted James Hurdman, a former Enfield school friend and Financial Planner, to help her set up a community business to support families affected by autism. A year later, Victoria Aseervatham, a highly experienced Local Government Manager, who grew up in Enfield, joined our Management Team.

Our Directors Team includes parents with lived experience of raising neuro-diverse children and navigating SEND processes.
