voluntary sector to provide an Independent Support Service.
Embrace Wigan and Leigh were successful in their bid and work
collaboratively with Wigan SENDIAS to provide Independent
Support over the 16 month period (sept 2014 - April 2016).
Independent Support is a free, 16 month (September 2014-
April 2016) government funded programme which has been
designed to provide additional support to young people and
their families during the implementation of the SEND reform.
Independent Supporters will be recruited by all local
authorities in partnership with a specifically commissioned
service or organisation to provide support to young people and
their families throughout the Education.
