Local support - Gloucestershire County Council has published information about the support that is available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 years with SEND. This is called the ‘Local Offer’ and can be found via the Resource link below.
The Children and Families Act 2014 requires a joined up approach across education, health and social care to help make possible improved outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
Now everyone aged 0 to 25 with SEND and needing extra support will have a single plan setting out all the help they will receive from education, health and social care and who is responsible for each part of the plan. In Gloucestershire, we are calling this the Graduated Pathway of support which includes early help and statutory processes. This includes MyPlan, MyPlan+ and Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans. More information on the Graduated Pathway is available in the Resource link below.
