SEND joint commissioning approach
Joint commissioning is a key part to our SEND service improvement. It will have an important part to play in the delivery of our priorities.
Our strategy allows partners who commission education, health and care provisions to:
- plan services
- deliver services
- deliver positive outcomes to children and young people.
It also sets out how strong leadership, and good governance between us, the NHS and key partners can:
- set standards designed to support continuous improvements
- reflect, benchmark and peer review across the partner organisations.
SEND joint funding process
The SEND joint funding process provides guidance and protocols for professionals across education, health and social care to secure appropriate joint funding for children and young people with SEND or children in care in Kent.
