What is Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Brokerage?
A Personal Budget (PB) is made up of funding currently paid to:
- meet the social care needs of the child or young person with SEND
- meet their continuing care health needs, and
- meet their educational needs (this is the top-up amount only, that is the amount above the initial £6000 funding awarded to the school to support a child/young person with SEND.)
These budgets can be combined and the way they are spent altered if the young person and their family feel their needs can be better met in other ways.
