Minister Ford’s Open Letter to the SEND Sector

In an open letter to children and young people with SEND, their parents/ carers, and families and all others who support them, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families, Vicky Ford MP, stated that the Government’s aim for SEND, through the Coronavirus Bill and further proposed changes, is to balance the needs of this vulnerable group to receive the support they need with managing the demands on local authorities and health bodies to respond to this outbreak. You can read the letter in full here.
