Reducing Distant SEND Placements Increasing Regional Sufficiency

Reducing distant SEND placements - Increasing regional sufficiency

A study commissioned by NHS England, carried out in the East Midlands region - Co-ordinated by Pete Chilvers, SDSA. Spring 2016

This study investigates how it might be possible to reduce and eventually eliminate the need to place young people with learning disabilities and/or autism in residential special schools that are far away from the family home. The assumption made in the study is that, in almost every case, it is better for child and family outcomes for placements to be close to their family home.
