New website launched for families with special educational needs

A new website has been launched for children and families with special educational needs and disabilities.

The Leicestershire County Council website has been billed as a “one stop shop” for people wanting to find out about care and support services.

The council is also looking to get families involved in developing the site.

Councillor Ivan Ould, county council cabinet member for children and families, said: “We’re committed to ensuring that the reform improves families’ lives.

“A number of children now have new-style support plans, and we aim to have these in place for all young people by 2018.”
