High Needs Funding Survey Summary

Earlier this year, ADCS issued a high needs funding survey to all DCSs.

Local authorities were asked about the specific issues which were driving demand and cost pressures in the high needs budget and from the received responses, three themes emerged: the increase in numbers of children with SEND related to the extension of support to young people up to the age of 25 and early identification of additional needs, particularly in the early years; increasing complexity of need; and, a lack of capacity within mainstream settings to provide a graduated response to additional needs before turning to statutory processes.
