Recording of SEND webinar available

A recording of our webinar with Wigan Council - one of the Department for Education's (DfE) pathfinder sites is now available.

A copy of the presentation slides can also be downloaded below.

The webinar was presented by Michael Chew, Children's Service Manager: Targeted and Specialist Commissioning from Wigan Council and In Control's Children's Programme lead, Nic Crosby. It included the work being undertaken by Wigan Council to join up funding and develop a single plan supported by a single budget.

Over the past seven years, In Control has been working closely with a growing number of children's services, families, children and young people as well as partners in the health services and voluntary and community sector.

Our Children's Programme is a membership programme which local authorities and providers join annually. Our strength is in our members and more than a third of English councils are currently members. All demonstrate a consistent willingness to share and build on their experiences in order to speed up changes, develop best practice and share the latest cutting edge information, tools and resources.
