The New Legal Framework for Children with SEN in Youth Custody

Written by Council for Disabled ChildrenDate 26 Feb 2015

The Children and Families Act 2014 transforms the system for disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs (SEN).

Part of the new legal framework will introduce new requirements for supporting children and young people with SEN when they are detained in youth custody.

This presentation explains the new legal duties and rights as set out in the Children and Families Act 2014. This presentation has been designed to support local authorities, youth offending teams and custodial establishments in understanding and preparing to implement this new framework from April 2015.
