25 Sep 2014 Legal Factsheets about SEND reforms

Useful legal fact sheets about all areas of the new SEND reforms, and the duties on local authorities, can now be read or downloaded for free. Irwin Mitchell has teamed up with deafblind charity Sense and Steve Broach, a barrister at Monckton Chambers, to design legal training for ‘Independent Supporters’ – a government-funded programme led by the Council for Disabled Children to provide support to families who have children with special educational needs and need additional advice on the reforms.

As part of this project, Irwin Mitchell and its partners have prepared a series of factsheets and template letters on Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014.
