Carers of Barking and Dagenham

Barnardo’s has been selected by The Council for Disabled Children on behalf of the Department for Education to provide  an additional resource to young people and parents during the implementation of the SEND reforms. It will provide independent supporters to work directly with young people and the parents of children being assessed for a new EHC plan and those converting from a statement of SEN.
