Involving parents and young people in decisions

Examples of what other organisations must do

All health, social care and education authorities must also co-operate and work together. For example:

  • Health bodies must let councils know of any children, usually in early years, who may have special educational needs or a disability.
  • Agencies must work together: different teams in the same agency, and different teams in different agencies.
  • Agencies must support each other. For example, they must respond to each other’s questions by agreed deadlines.
  • Organisations should work together to set up and pay for services.
