In June 2021 we conducted a consultation to gather your views on the draft Lancashire SEND Plan.
The SEND Plan is our strategic document and it provides the high level priorities, what benefits we expect to achieve, and the ways in which we will work on SEND matters.
The draft SEND Plan was written using information and feedback provided by over 160 people throughout the 'Think SEND' events held in April and May 2021. People engaged with the process and gave meaningful and useful information that not only helped us with the work to develop the plan, but will also help us as we continue to improve SEND services across the partnership.
In June 2021 the draft plan was shared with the SEND Partnership, and more than 100 people attended a range of 10 consultation events, or responded using an online survey or via email, providing feedback and suggestions to further improve the document. The events consisted of 4 general sessions that anybody could attend, and a further 6 events targeted at specific groups such as parent carers, children and young people, commissioners and healthcare providers.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to and shared their views on the plan.
The next step is for the final plan to be approved by the SEND Partnership Board. The approved plan will then be published on Monday 19th July, and the SEND Programme Management Team will be available to support partners in identifying how to operationalise the plan over the next 12-18 months.
