The Council for Disabled Children has been delivering training on roles and responsibilities in the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) Process for the past 6 years, with a focus on holistic outcomes. The conversations held, either at a local or regional level, consistently highlight the same challenges, which cannot be solved within an individual service or agency. These challenges are systemic, and solving them will rely on taking a national, system-wide view of the process.

These documents draw on more than 30 multi- and single-agency workshop discussions, conducted in 2021 – 2022 and spanning all 9 regions in England.

The Visualisation document identifies the relationships between different challenges in the process.

The Proposed Solutions document summarises the recurring recommendations made practitioners, managers, leaders and families on where the barriers are and what will resolve them.
