Local authorities have a duty to provide, adequately resource and jointly commission impartial and free information, advice and support for disabled children, young people and their parents, and to children and young people with SEN and their parents. This support must cover education, health and social care.
Free and impartial information, advice and support is available from IASS, Bromley who provide support on a wide range of SEND issues, including the statutory assessment process and annual review, to children, young people and parents.
Independent Support was a time limited programme providing additional support for young people and parents while statements were transferred to Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).
Independent Support finished on 31st July 2018.
Bromley Parent Voice was a member of a consortium delivering Independent Support in Bromley. As part of this work a number of useful resources were developed.
