In circumstances where Parent/Carers are challenging the educational aspects of the EHC Plan, this enables them to also challenge the Health and Social Care aspects of the plan. This came into force on 3rd April 2018. Please read this important information.

The local offer provides information to children and young people with disabilities and their families.

This information should help you to know what support and services are available in Solihull and to make informed choices about your education, health, care and transition to adulthood.

Solihull has a SEND 0-25 service based at Elmwood Place, 37 Burtons Way, Smiths Wood, Solihull, B36 0UG. This service brings together key professionals to provide services for eligible children and young people with SEND.

The SEND 0-25 service includes:

  • StART (Statutory Assessment and Review Team) - lead the assessment of young people for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plans)
  • SISS (Specialist Inclusion and Support Service) - provides specialist teaching, assessment, advice to inform EHC Plans, training and sensory support services, for  children and young people, their families and their educational setting.  Services can be offered from point of diagnosis until a young person leaves school. Some SISS services are traded services and are purchased by Schools.
  • CEPS (Community Educational Psychology Service) - provides educational psychology support, support to Schools, assessment and input to EHC Plans
  • Early Years - supports educational settings in the early identification of SEND and targeting focused support to assist development
  • CYPSDS (Children Young People's Specialist Disability Service) - is a Social Care service for children, young people and transition. The team assesses, provides services, monitors and reviews support plans and supports the transition of young people to Adult Social Care.
  • BU (Business Support Unit) - provides specialist administrative support for all SEND 0-25 service functions.

The Solihull local offer tells parents and young people what they are entitled to, what services are available to them and how to access them.
