This quick guide aims to help health commissioners and providers tackle the challenges involved in implementing the joint commissioning of services for children and young people with special educational needs and disability (SEND) introduced by Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

The guide contains links to a wide range of resources around commissioning, transition planning and co-production.

NDTi is establishing three collaborative action learning networks to support greater working across local authority and post-16 providers. The SEND reforms have brought about a number of opportunities for the post-16 sector but have equally meant local authorities and post-16 providers face making many systemic changes that can create challenges and cause some barriers to effective partnership working.

The report from the Children's Commissioner for Wales highlights many issues young people face as they become adults and points out the limited choices and funding available. Transition services, where they exist, vary greatly across Wales and frequently fail because they do not place young people at the centre of the planning process. Being able to make the right choices depends on the availability of the right information and too often this simply doesn't exist.

The guide provides a summary of the structure of the funding system and provides a quick reference guide; further information is available from the links in the document.
