Placements for Special Education Needs and Disabilities 0-25 years - Provider events

(NETPark, Sedgefield, 25th and 26th February)

The 12 local authorities across the North East and Client Commissioning Group (CCG) partners have come together to form the "NE12+ Collaborative".

The Collaborative is looking at better ways of commissioning placements in Department for Education registered, non-maintained and independent special schools and colleges for residential and/or day placements for children and young people aged 0 - 25 years.  The aim is to work with providers in a collaborative approach to establish new commissioning arrangements from September 2015.

The first event on 25 February 2pm - 5pm is aimed at existing providers of these services who are currently not engaged with NE12 + to deliver these services and new providers who would like to develop services to meet the needs of NE12+ in this area. You will find out about the overarching plans of the NE12+ Collaborative, access support to help you register on the NEPO Portal and have the opportunity to talk to commissioners.  To book for this event click here.

The second event on 26 February 10am - 12pm is aimed at all providers (those currently providing services, those who provide these services but are not engaged with NE12+ and new providers wishing to develop services in this area).  The Collaborative is seeking the best outcomes for children and young people and will focus on potential commissioning intentions in order to achieve this.  To book for this event click here.
