3  FE colleges and ISPs must have regard to the Code of Practice  Local authorities should involve post-16 institutions when reviewing their SEN provision and developing their local offer  Allow young people to express a preference for a particular school, FE college or ISP (including free schools and academies) and require that institution to respond  Requires local authorities to consult schools, colleges and ISPs about young people they would like to place with them and send them a copy of their EHC plan  Make ‘best endeavours’ for young people with SEND  Local authorities can provide children’s services to young people over 18. Post 16 Changes in the Children and Families Act 2014

16  Person centred review  Travel training  Supported Internship – Town Hall print room  Works Monday – Thursday “ I was one of those parents who said I wouldn't let him go, I wanted to protect him. It was my worry, not his - other people helped me see that he could make his own choices. It is his life and he is learning all of the time. Every time Nathan leaves home to get the bus to work he says thanks and gives me a kiss before he leaves. I know what Nathan is thanking me for - it is for letting him go on his own. ” - Eileen, Nathan’s Mum Nathan’s Story

17 Exploring the Links between the Children and Families Act and the Care Bill

18  Wellbeing principle ◦Including particular focus on key outcomes (employment, health, suitable accommodation and community participation)  Childs Need’s Assessment ◦Duty to carry out if ‘likely need’ and ‘significant benefit’ conditions apply  Personal Budgets ◦Adult care and support plans will all include a personal budget  Information & Advice Service ◦Duty to establish and maintain a service for individuals and their carers  Joint commissioning ◦Better Care Fund Key Duties in the Care Bill

19  Ensure there is a representative from Adult Social Care on the Local Authority SEND Implementation board;  Consider whether a Child Needs Assessment (CNA) is required from Yr 9 review as part of the focus on PfA outcomes and if Child’s Carers Assessment;  Develop a process that enables the CNA to produce an indicative personal budget for adult care and support;  Develop a process to allow the information from the EHC plan, including the CNA, and from personal budget holders’ choices, to inform the Joint Commissioning Strategy; Making it work in practice

20  Develop the market to ensure that there are quality services, which lead to the intended outcomes of the Children and Families Act and the Care Act;  Ensure that young people and their families have access to good information, advice and support in relation to what is available and how to purchase it;  Provide young people and their families with opportunities to pool budgets and commission mutually beneficial support;  Consider establishing a joint information and advice offer across all age groups, or across the 0-25 age group; Making it work in practice 2
