On 7th January  the Department for Education issued a press release announcing a new Independent Support fund which will be managed by the Council for Disabled Children.
The £30 million will be used to recruit and train a pool of 'independent supporters' - champions drawn from independent voluntary, community and private organisations to help the families of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) through the new process following comprehensive reforms to support.
CDC will be overseeing the recruitment and training of the independent supporters in time for the implementation of the Department for Education's SEN reforms.
