Independent Support update
Current funding arrangements for Independent supporters finished at the end of March 2018. This government funding was originally made available for services to help families going through the EHC needs assessment process, during the transition from the old legislation to the new.
We recognise how overwhelming the Education, Health and Care plan process process can be for many parents and carers and, though the funding for the Independent Support programme has ended, we are pleased to say we are able to continue to provide our support.
