Help with the EHCP application process

We've put together some information to assist you when you make your application for an education, health and care plan (EHCP) for your child.

You can watch our videos on YouTube about the EHCP process.

You can get in touch with our SEND team for help.

You can contact the SAY: SEND and You service or read information on their website.

You can read our full guidance on the EHCP process.

If you are a child or young person with SEND and would like to know more about education, health and care plans (EHCPs), you can get in touch with SAY: SEND and You or read the helpful information on their website.

You can also speak to your education setting and read our guide produced by young people about EHCP's.

EHCP support is only one part of the support you can get, and there is lots of support you can get without an EHCP. There's lots more information in these SEND Hub webpages to help you can find support.
