On Monday 24 October we, the Somerset SEND Partnership (which includes Somerset County Council, NHS Somerset, Somerset Parent Carer Forum and education providers released our draft SEND Strategy to the public for consultation.This may sound like a daunting thing to read and feedback on, but it’s quite exciting!
We need your help to shape the future of SEND services for the next three years.
To draft the Strategy, we used feedback from our “future plans for SEND discussion groups,” the SEND Annual Survey and other forums - we would like to thank everyone that got involved!
We have four themes that we would like to focus on in the next three years which are:
- Working together
- Getting help as early as possible
- Access to the right support and provision
- Preparing for the future
The consultation closes on Friday 23 December 2022 and after the consultation closes, the Somerset SEND Partnership will review all feedback and use this to inform the final strategy.
