Transport assistance available for 16 to 25 year olds with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to get to and from college or sixth form.
The council aims to ensure young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are supported to prepare for an adult life, helping them to achieve the best possible outcomes in education in a way that is inclusive and encourages independence. It does this through its post 16 special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) student transport policy.
If a young person has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), learning difficulties or disabilities, or medical needs, and is aged between 16 and 25 on 31 August 2020, they may be eligible for assistance with transport if they are unable to travel independently either by public transport or on foot to their post-16 education provision.
