Support for local authorities
SEND Regional Network
There is a SEND Regional Network in each of the 9 English regions with a regional lead committed to coordinating local authorities activity around implementation of the SEND reforms. You can find your regional lead using the link below. The network also provides information packs and resources on some of the key reform themes including the Local Offer, Personal Budgets and Joint Commissioning.
Senior Management Leadership Programme
Part of the support offer to local authorities is a leadership programme for senior leaders which provides a combination of legal training, personal development and practical advice on delivery. The programme was successfully piloted in 2015 to 40 local authority representatives and is now in it's 7th year running.

Council for Disabled Children Online Modules
We have created a series of online modules that set out the new duties under the Children and Families Act and provide practical advice on how to deliver the reforms in practice.
