Adviza wins contract to work on Independent Support Programme
4th Apr 2014
Adviza has been selected as one of the organisations to take part in the Independent Support programme. This is a 2-year programme to provide additional support to young people and parents during the implementation of the Government’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) reforms. The announcement was made this week by the Council for Disabled Children (CDC) who will manage the process and oversee an independent evaluation.
Adviza will be involved in the evidence and build phase, which will run from April to June 2014, in the Buckinghamshire area. This phase is crucial to the development of the programme as it focuses on gathering evidence and reporting on effective practice models that achieve positive outcomes.
The programme, which is funded by the Government, will start in September and will provide independent supporters in each local area (as an additional resource) for a time limited period to work directly with young people and the parents of children being assessed for an Education Health and Care plan.
More information on the programme can be found on the Independent Support web pages here.
