This pack is for local authorities and education, health and social care professionals working with the implementations of the SEND reforms in relation to EHC plans.
The aim of this pack is to give people a simple way of working together (with parents, children and young people) to set out a long term plan for implementing personal budgets as a core part of the Local offer and the EHC assessment and planning process.
It brings together much of the work over the past three years by the SEND Pathfinders, SEND Champions, Individual Budget pilot sites (2008-2011), the In Control Children’s Programme and the work of DfE funded delivery partners. Also included are areas of work, which are linked to the SEND Code of Practice. Each area of work is briefly explained and linked to useful resources.
