The Children and Families Act 2014, implemented from September 2014, has major implications for how the NHS organises and delivers services to children and young people who have a Special Education Need and/or Disability (SEND) between the ages of 0 and 25. It reforms the system of support across education, health and social care to ensure that services are organised with the needs and preferences of the child and their family firmly at the centre, from birth to the transition to adulthood.

To support these changes our CCG has appointed a Clinical Improvement Lead for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).  This role is to ensure that the CCGs and their commissioned providers fulfil their obligations in relation to the SEND reforms.

The SEND Reforms require that all local authorities implement Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans to replace SEN Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments for young people between 0-25 along with:

This requires all partner agencies to work collaboratively to improved outcomes for Children and Young People with SEND.
