The Together Trust has sent a letter to the Department for Education alongside 30+ leading disability organisations, including Young Minds, Scope, National Autistic Society and Together for Short Lives to say that future send reform should:

  • Be co-designed with children and families
  • Strengthen compliance with the law
  • Ensure parental choice is retained
  • Make post-16 support a priority
  • Not squeeze children’s needs into funding bands
  • Address existing gaps in the Green Paper
