A survey from the National SEND Forum

The National SEND Forum (NSENDF) is a stakeholder group with representation from many of the leading organisations in the field. At a time when SEND provision is under the spotlight, we are looking to explore how provision is delivered and structured regionally and to explore the concept of 'Regional Centres of Expertise'.

The first step is to identify what already exists locally, regionally and nationally, by way of provision for children and young people (aged 0-25) who require the kind of specialist teaching and multi-professional support that is not always readily available in each locality. We believe that there is value in delivering some provision sub-regionally, regionally or even nationally and that there are already many great examples of this happening across the country. However, we also know we don't yet have a good enough sense of what is currently being delivered, or what gets in the way of expanding existing work. The more responses we get to this survey, the better position we will be in to start an informed debate with government about how best to support children and young people with 'low-incidence' or complex needs, their families and those who work with them.

We know time is precious and in short supply, so thank you for your support.
