COVID-19 update (April 2021)
The EHC teams are still working from home but continue to be available by e-mail. New unitary authority e-mail addresses are listed below and on the contact page.
All of our phone lines are on answer phone. We cannot access any messages left on them, so we suggest you e-mail your locality team instead and someone will be in touch.
Our business support staff would like to request that documents are submitted to the EHC team by email instead of by post.
We will continue to review this situation.
We are pleased to be able to provide a document with links to local, national and international webpages with ideas and information and entertainment created during the first lockdown period but may still be useful to you and your children.
We continue to offer resources to support our families during this pandemic through our
Local Offer website and the social media information posts from the Local Offer team. GOV.UK have also provided resources:
The education, health and care (EHC) process is used to assess a child's special educational needs and decide whether they require an EHC plan to support improved outcomes.
