New Money For Councils To Support Families With Send
Councils are to receive £45 million of new funding to help prepare for the biggest transformation of special educational needs and disabilities support in over 30 years.
The new money will support councils in giving young people and parents greater say over their personalised care and assistance. It will also put in place a new birth-to-25 system for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
The government has also today published a new easier-to-read code of practice, which offers practical advice for councils, schools and hospitals to ensure they are providing the new support for these children and young people.
Children and Families Minister, Edward Timpson, said:
The new code of practice sets out in one place the legal requirements that councils, schools and other organisations that support children and young people with SEND must follow.
Studies have found that the majority of parents piloting the new system feel more empowered and are happier with the services they are receiving. Councils are also making good progress in laying the groundwork for the new system.
