This workshop is aimed only at managers from IS agencies and IAS Services under contract to the Council for Disabled Children. The workshop will offer an opportunity to hear about the national position with regards to Independent Support and provide a safe environment for shared learning - whilst acknowledging both the achievements and challenges faced with service delivery.
Who should attend?
We invite one representative from an IAS service and one representative from an IS agency operating in the region. Those that attend must be involved, informed and responsible for their delivery of Independent Support. If an IS agency is operating in more than one particular region then they are very welcome to attend more than one event, or better still send their appointed local manager to each relevant workshop in which they operate.
The workshop will offer an opportunity to meet CDC, DfE officials and other regional providers; hear first-hand the national position with regards to Independent Support; discuss some of the challenges faced with delivery; receive an update on the SEND Ofsted Inspection process and learn about the Transforming Care Programme.
