KIDS has been commissioned by the Council for Disabled Children over the last four years to provide Independent Support for parents, children and young people.   The Independent Support programme was always intended to be a time limited resource, supporting the transition from Statements to Educational Health and Care Plans, and will come to an end on 31 July 2018. 

KIDS' proud to have been part of this programme which has enabled our staff to support 1000’s of families. From August 2018 advice and support will continue to be available to families through their local SEND Information, Advice and Support Services (SENDIASS) and also through the national Contact helpline.
