SEND Regional Leads

SEND Regional Network

There is a SEND Regional Network in each of the 9 regions which includes a SEND Regional lead committed to coordinating activity around implementation of the SEND reforms.

Key network activities include:

  • Organising peer support activities including workshops, regional events and local working groups focusing on specific elements of the reforms.
  • Working in partnership by sharing resources, ideas and approaches.
  • Developing a sustainable approach.
