Thank you

We welcomed Ruth to South Glos support group last night to discuss what we need from the new role of independent supporter - loads of input and lots for us to think about. Thank you to all of you who came. (The Independent Support Programme is a government funded initiative to support parents and young people requesting education health and care (EHC) plan assessments for the first time, for those transferring at annual review from statements to plans, and for those young people moving on from school to college who would otherwise have had a learning difficulty assessment.)
