SEN website

NEW WEBSITE COULD CHANGE LIVES

 

A new website has just launched which aims to support children and young people, aged up to 25 years old, with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

 

The online ‘SEN and Disability Guide’ is a joint venture between Bedford Borough Council, Bedfordshire CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) and Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum.

 

The user friendly website gives details of Bedford’s Local Offer and provides advice and guidance on a range of topics such as personal budgets, eligibility criteria for services, leisure facilities, leaving school, and it also displays information on health and education services within Bedford Borough. Stakeholders who have provided information for the site are now working together to boost awareness of the new guide and to maximise its potential.

 

Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Our aim is to help and encourage children and young people to lead a healthy lifestyle. We highly recommend that those with SEN, their families and support workers make use of the site to get the most out of the services available to them.

 

“We are speaking to lots of parents, carers, young people and professionals as we develop the online SEN and Disability Guide.”

 

Cllr Sue Oliver, Executive Member for Children’s Social Care, said: “This website sets out, in one place, what support services are available. The purpose of the information displayed is to help these young people to achieve their goals and live life to the full every step of the way.”
