Independent Support – free help with EHCPs
Are you a Cambridgeshire parent or carer struggling to find your way through the EHCP process? Don’t panic – free, independent support is just a click or phone call away.
To help families through the new assessment and planning process, Cambridgeshire parents and carers of a child or young person with additional needs can get help from an Independent Supporter. However, please note that this time-limited service is ending on July 31 2018.
How it helps your family
An Independent supporter will:
- Act as a named contact person throughout the EHCP assessment and planning process for your child
- Help you transfer a Statement of SEN or Learning Difficulty Assessment to an EHCP
- Help you prepare for meetings
- Help you get the information you need for an EHCP from various services.
