Support for Parents and Carers
What is Independent Support?
Independent Support is a national programme commissioned by the Department of Education through the Council for Disabled Children. Our main aim is to support parents, children and young people aged 0-25 years of age through the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) reforms. September 2014 saw the start of the transition period from SEN Statements and Learning Difficulties Assessments to a more coordinated Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and we support parents through this transition process.
