Background

Through the Delivering Better Outcomes Together (DBOT) contract, funded by the Department for Education (DfE), the Council for Disabled Children (CDC) has been providing bespoke individual and collective support to local areas on a variety of topics related to SEND and Social Care. As part of this workstream, we have been running a series of accelerated working group (AWG) sessions to 13 local areas focused on Eligibility, Thresholds and Short Breaks.

As part of these sessions, we are creating outputs to support local areas to embed consistent offers for disabled children and young people and their families. One of these outputs is the creation of a co-designed Needs-led Eligibility Framework which enables lawful, transparent and accessible pathways enabling families to access the right support at the right time.
