The London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) and the Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group (THCCG) oversee all arrangements for children and young people with SEND. We recently organised a number of workshops which parents and carers were invited to.
We tried a different approach: explaining how things work and some of our difficulties and then sitting down at tables with parents and carers to hear about their difficulties. We then worked together to see what solutions we could come up with.
Over 160 parents took part. If you want to know more about the solutions and what the Council has done, read: Feedback_parents.pdf
SEND Travel Assistance Consultation

SEND Post 16 Transport Consultation
We are consulting on our annual post-16 transport policy statement. This lays out the arrangements for transport, or other support, that the council will provide to ensure that anyone of ‘sixth form age’ can attend education or training.
Sixth form age covers any child or young person aged 16 to 19, or up to the age of 25 with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The statement is for all post-16 learners, which means young people from the age of 16 who are in education or training, continuing learners aged 19 including those with an education, health or care plan (EHCP) up to the age of 25.
The statement should inform young people and their parents/carers about what transport arrangements and support are available locally for the following academic year.
We want to hear what you think about our statement. Our consultation runs from Monday 23 March to Friday 1 May 2020 and our revised statement will be published by the Friday 29 May 2020.
To have your say, please visit Let’s Talk Tower Hamlets, the councils online consultation and engagement platform.
