Supporting Young People with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) in Custody Final Programme Report

Since the introduction of the Children and Families Act 2014, the Education Health and Care (EHC) Plans began replacing Statements of Special Educational Needs and Learning Difficulty Assessments. In April 2015, Sheffield Futures began work on a Department for Education funded National Prospectus Grant – SEND Custody Project, endorsed by the South and West Yorkshire Resettlement Consortium.

The focus of the project was three fold:

  • Training covering the SEND reforms for professionals working with young people with SEND in custody in the South and West Yorkshire region.
  • Involvement work with young people with SEND in custody, focussing on their experiences.
  • The production of a guide to working with young people with SEND in custody.
