Have your say on plans to improve special needs services in Camden
Camden Council is asking parents and carers to have their say on how we can improve services for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) aged 0 to 25.
The Council has launched a parent survey to refresh its Local Area SEND Strategy to improve support services and the outcomes achieved by children and young people with SEND over the next five years.
The strategy will outline the vision and key priorities for Camden’s children and young people with SEND so they can achieve well in their early years, at school and into adulthood.
Some emerging themes, which will help us shape the strategy, include ensuring children and young people with SEND and their parents and carers have access to good quality information and advice, that they receive early support at the right time and in the right way and that young people with SEND can make a smoother transition into adulthood.
We want all children and young people with special educational needs and / or disabilities in Camden to succeed in life, from early years, to school and in adolescence, so they can lead fulfilled lives as adults. We’re proud of the work we’ve achieved so far together with schools, health organisations and the voluntary sector to support all local children and young people with SEND, but we are always looking for ways to improve our services.
We want to hear from as many parents and carers as possible to understand their views and experiences with children with SEND so we can provide the best possible support and services.
