Graham Quinn, Chair of SSV, was recently invited by Edward Timpson MP, Minister of State for Vulnerable Children and Families to attend the High Needs Funding Consultation. The meeting was on the current proposals for a high needs national funding formula and other reforms, as set out in the consultation material published here. The Minister was keen to engage personally with a range of individuals and representatives from organisations involved in commissioning and providing services and placements for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, and this “round table” meeting provided an opportunity to hear a range of views on what has been proposed.
