KIDS Independent Support Service

The KIDS Independent Support Service provides free, impartial support and information for parents and young people applying for, or transferring to, an Education, Health and Care plan (EHC).

We will

• provide information regarding the application for an EHC needs assessment and what to expect at each stage of the process

 • support you in communicating with other professionals involved

 • support you in preparing for and attending EHC related meetings

Any parent or young person applying for an EHC, or transferring from a Statement to an EHC, can use the service and support is available through the whole process.
