On 5 March 2013, the Department for Education and the Department of Health published a joint report on progress across the pathfinder programme, including headline results from a survey of 65 families with completed education health and care plans.  The report is available for download from the associated resources section of this page.

Further information about pathfinder progress, including examples of draft education, health and care plans and local offer frameworks, is available from the ‘Food for Thought’ pages of the pathfinder website.

The Department has announced the appointment of 20 pathfinders, covering 31 local authorities (LAs) and their primary care trust (PCT) and emerging clinical commissioning group partners. You can see the full list of pathfinders and further information in the associated resources section.

In addition, the Department has announced the appointments of SQW to evaluate the pathfinder programme and Mott MacDonald to provide support to the pathfinders.
