17th Children's Residential - Delivering Change - November 2012

13th and 14th November 2012, Leeds.

Although members have been working together since 2007 the work is no where complete and with the Green Paper and the SEN Bill making clear statements about personal budgets, the real challenge is only just beginning.

This was a chance to explore what personal budgets meant across health, SEN and social care with representatives from the government's Green Paper team and other attendees.  Also included was:

  • An update from the Department for Education
  • An opportunity to work through transition issues drawing in experience from local authorities and the national Preparation for Adulthood programme
  • A chance to hear about what's happening at the Pathfinder sites and SE7 Framework for Choice and Control
  • Details of the proposed national brokerage service being outlined by the SEND Consortia
  • Information on new publications including 'Building a New Relationship' from In Control and an In Control and KIDS guide aimed at families

Key Speakers included:

  • Andre Imich, Department for Education, SEN Professional Adviser
  • Dawn Stobbs, Department of Health, Personal Health Budgets Team
  • Andrew Baxter, Department for Education, Green Paper Team and Personal Budget Lead
  • Nic Gitsham, Preparation for Adulthood, NDTI
