In November 2020 we asked families about the draft Joint LLR SEND Commissioning Strategy, 2021-24. Following feedback from families, The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Joint Commissioning Strategy 2021-2024 has now been published. This strategy forms the first Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Commissioning Strategy for Children and Young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).
