Our Knowledge

Our Knowledge and Expertise

SEND4change invests in the knowledge and development of its specialist team. As an organisation we have access to significant expertise in arrangements for young people with SEND.

Collaboration and Joint Commissioning

We have a deep understanding of the:

  • benefits of a comprehensive offer across education, health, and social care
  • importance of integrating education, health, and social care services, and creating links between the professionals that plan and deliver these services
  • requirement of Local Areas to jointly commission services
  • benefits of partnerships and collaboration.
Engagement with the Users of Services

We are acutely aware of the:

  • importance of a robust SEN support offer, as well as the importance of high quality outcomes-focussed EHC plans
  • risks to young people if they become disengaged with learning either through their own choices or through exclusion
  • the need to prepare for adulthood, and how families and young people need to maximise the opportunities for work and independent living.

Budgets and Responsibilities

We have significant knowledge regarding:

  • management of complex high needs budgets, resources, and other forms of funding for Early Years, schools, settings and colleges
  • legal duties, responsibilities, and risks associated with delivering services and provision for children and young people with SEND.
The Present, and The Future

We have a deep insight into:

  • effective and efficient frameworks for schools, LAs, and health bodies
  • the future direction of travel; we know the context and changing landscape of schools, Local Authorities and public organisations.
