16-25 SEND Commissioning Strategy | Last Updated: 20 August 2014
Published September 2013
The Children & Young People’s Trust has developed a 16-25 Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Support Commissioning Strategy which sets out how we intend to better plan for and prepare young people with SEND for positive outcomes in adulthood within Wiltshire. Nationally the future shape of provision and support for young people with SEND has been subject to a radical rethink. A key feature is to put more choice and control in the hands of parents/carers and young people themselves. This strategy explains Wiltshire’s vision; the national and local context; a comprehensive needs analysis; views of stakeholders; examples of best practice; a review of existing services and learning provision; financial expenditure; commissioning priorities; and how the strategy will be taken forward and implemented.
