DfE/DHSC MINISTERIAL LETTER TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH SEND, THEIR FAMILIES AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT THEM
The Department for Education has announced the creation of a £37 million fund to support children with special educational needs and disabilities during 2020/21. Families with children who have complex needs and disabilities will receive grants for vital equipment to make their lives easier while implementing social distancing measures, including computers, specialist equipment and educational toys.
The Family Fund will help low-income families with seriously ill or disabled children with the cost of equipment, goods or services - from washing machines and refrigerators to sensory and educational equipment that they might not otherwise be able to afford. The grants are typically worth £400 to £500 per family and vary depending on need.
