Education Health and Care Plans

We’re working hard to keep the Education Health and Care process moving and we are continuing to review this. Assessments for an EHC plan currently involve telephone and video calls as we are unable to do our work face-to-face.  Our decision-making groups have also moved to online meetings.

We’re here to help

There’s still lots of help available to you from our different teams.  

You can find details of how you can get in touch with our support services on our Contact Us page.  Whether you need some advice or support for your child, tips on managing educational activities or routines or just a friendly chat, our teams are here for you.
