Special educational needs and disability (SEND) parent, children and young person partnership service

Education Health and Care plans and transfers to an EHCP

Is your child or young person having their Statement of Special Educational Needs or Learning Difficulties Assessment transferred to an Education Health and Care (EHC) Plan?

Our SEND Parent, Children and Young Person Partnership Service and Core Assets Children’s Services are jointly delivering the new Independent Support Service in Central Bedfordshire.

We are here to provide confidential, impartial and independent information and support. Our service helps families and young people (aged 0 to 25 years).

In particular, we can support you through the new EHC Needs assessment process and the transfer from statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments to Education, Health and Care Plans.

This is a free service, and we are here to help and support young people and their families.
