Supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities

The Children and Families Act 2014 introduces a new statutory requirement for local services to work together when providing care and support for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities.

From September 2014 local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and education services will be expected to collaborate on care plans.

This document provides guidance and advice for health and wellbeing boards (HWBs) on how best to oversee the implementation of changes made by the act.
