Hartlepool carers continue to support families with a child or young person from the age of 0 - 25 years who are transferring from a statement of special educational needs or a learning difficulty assessment to an Education, Health and Care needs assessment.
Trained Independent support workers can explain to you the different stages of the assessment period and help to ensure that your views and wishes are being listened to and to take an active lead role in the planning of the Education, Health and care needs assessment.
An Independent support worker can support you at any meeting that you may be required to attend, signpost you to local information advice and support services and provide information on personal budgets.
If you would like an Independent Support worker to support you throughout this process please contact our Independent Support Facilitator who will be happy to meet with you and give you any information that you may require.
