New grants for children and young people with SEND

16 March 2017 Last updated at 01:59

Edward Timpson, minister of state for vulnerable children and families, has recently announced two grant allocations to support local authorities to develop provision for children and young people with SEND. This includes an allocation to develop a strategic plan, as well as capital funding to create new school places, and improve existing facilities for children and young people with SEND. We'll work with providers, young people and parent/carers to develop an appropriate plan. Further information can be found on the Department for Education website.
