Event description

Description

As part of our role as Strategic Reform Partner to the DfE the Council for Disabled Children have been delivering regional ‘social care and the SEND reforms’ training to team managers, social workers and early help practitioners. Based on feedback from these sessions and from our wider social care networks it is clear that some of the trickier social care challenges require a multi-agency approach to identify potential solutions that are adaptable to different LA contexts.

The purpose of this action learning set workshop is to bring together multi-agency local area teams of strategic and operational colleagues from across social care, education and health. By pooling a range of experience and expertise, each team will identify and develop practical solutions that can make a real impact.

This session is aimed at strategic and operational staff with decision-making responsibilities to ensure actions agreed in the session can be progressed and make a real impact.

Bookings will be taken per area. One representative from each of the following should attend: social care; SEN; Health; EHC plan writers; and a parent carer. There are 5 places available per local authority area. One lead person from each local authority should coordinate bookings for an area team to ensure representation as set out above.

This solution-focused workshop will focus on up to three key social care challenges across the following themes:

  • Role of social care in EHC assessment and planning

  • Linking EHC process with social care assessments and planning

  • Roles and responsibilities and workforce development

Each local area group will leave the session with a clear set of actions to move forward a particular challenge and CDC will support progress by sharing resources, identifying examples of national practice and facilitating the workshop.

Key audience:

  • Up to 5 people from each LA, comprising a representative from social care, SEN, Health, an EHC plan writer and a parent carer.

  • We recommend a mix of strategic and operational representation to ensure actions agreed in the session can be progressed by those with decision-making responsibilities.
