Context for this consultation Over the past year we have worked with parent, carers and young people to develop our Local Area Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Strategy. This document explains how we will all work together to make sure that services we provide to children and their familes work well together, provide clear information on what you can expect, and don't cause undue delays or problems.

We have also worked together to come up with a Co-Production charter which explains how we will make sure parents, carers and children and young people are involved in decisions about services and plans. This is an exciting and important part of this strategy, and there is a chance to comment on this charter too.
