SEND funding call for evidence

This has been sent in from the SEND Implementation Team at the Department for Education.

In December 2018 the Secretary of State announced our intention to hold a call for evidence on the current funding arrangements for those with special educational needs, those with disabilities, and those who require alternative provision.

This call for evidence is intended to help us understand how the current available funding is distributed, and what improvements to the financial arrangements could be made in future. We are also aware of the wider concerns about the overall amount of funding and the pressures on their budgets that many are reporting: we are separately looking carefully at this ahead of the next government Spending Review.

To find out more, please visit and will be open from now until 31 July 2019.
