SEND - Priority plan and useful documents

Joint Commissioning

This Joint Commissioning Framework sets out our commissioning intentions and approach to joint commissioning as we continue to improve services for children and young people with SEND and their families.

Working alongside partners and families to co-produce this framework has provided an opportunity to ensure the aims and outcomes are based on the lived experience of our children and their families. We are continuing to listen to and work with families so that the services they receive are timely, of a high quality and right for them.

This framework and the feedback from the recent borough wide SEND survey will form the basis of our Joint Commissioning Strategy.

Area SEND inspection explained - information for parents and carers

The government has published guides for parents, carers, children and young people about inspections of local services for children and young people with SEND.

SEND priority plan

The Our vision is that we want all children in Wigan to be happy, healthy and safe; to feel listened to and to have the maximum opportunities to be ambitious. If children or their families need help and support it should be at the right time, by the right person and in the right place for them.

To achieve this, we want to be ‘brilliant at the basics’ in our practice and, by having creative and collaborative partnerships. We want our staff to feel supported, confident and skilled to help our children and families achieve their aspirations.

Throughout the priorities are our cross-cutting themes of:

  • Communications
  • Co-production and engagement with children, young people and their parents and carers
  • Preparing for Adulthood
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) support
