Nuffield Foundation Funding Call

Posted in News

SENDInTheSpecialists coalition has highlighted this opportunity.

The Nuffield Foundation has just issued a funding call on addressing the growing SEND challenge: https://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/news/opinion/funding-call-addressing-the-growing-send-challenge

It specifically references the #SENDInTheSpecialists coalition.

As pressure on local authority budgets has grown, issues around access to SEND services have become increasingly prevalent. More than 100 prominent SEND-related organisations have launched a #SENDInTheSpecialists campaign aimed at boosting investment for more specialist SEND practitioners, and the Local Government Association has reported an increase in the number of legal disputes and tribunal hearings around SEND provision. More than 9 in 10 decisions were in favour of families – overturning initial decisions made by councils.

If this is relevant to you, do please consider submitting. The closing date seems to be 11 September and how to submit is at the very bottom of the page on the link above.”
