Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman report on Education, Health and Care plans

Not going to plan

The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman has published a report on education, health and care plans which finds that “children with special educational needs and disabilities are increasingly being failed by the system designed to support them.” The report examines issues around EHC plans including delays, lack of oversight by senior staff and not anticipating local needs. The Ombudsman is currently investigating more complaints than ever before. In 2018-19, it received 45% more complaints and carried out 80% more detailed investigations about EHC plans than in 2016-17.
