Support for families
If you're worried about a child or young person or think they're being abused, even if you're unsure, call 01752 668000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you think your child or young person might have a special educational need or disability (SEND), it can be really worrying. The purpose of this section of Plymouth's local offer is to give you some ideas about what to do next.
An Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) is a document which supports children and young people with special educational needs in education.
If you're struggling to get around your home due to a disability, long-term illness, visual impairment or old age, we may be able to help with equipment and adaptations to your home to make it easier and safer to live independently or for a carer to look after you.
Personal budgets are designed to help families have more control over their lives. A personal budget is made up of resources that can be used flexibly to support a child or young person with their education, health and/or care needs, as identified in their care and support plan.
If you're moving to Plymouth and your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan of special educational needs (or is currently undergoing assessment) email email@example.com or call 01752 307409 to discuss arrangements with us.
