Description

The Education, Health and Care Planning Team can help with queries regarding the process of applying for an Education, Health and Care (EHC) assessment or reviewing an EHC Plan for children and young people aged 0 to 25.

EHC plans are issued for children whose special educational needs are severe enough to warrant support from the local authority in addition to that provided by their school.

EHC Area Coordinators and EHC Plan Coordinators

Each Area Team has an EHC Area Coordinator and EHC Plan Coordinators who work on individual children’s cases.

The team works by assigning coordinators to three areas across the borough:

  • North Hackney
  • Central Hackney
  • South Hackney

Cases are allocated according to the school or education setting that the child attends.

Arrangements are made for children and young people who attend provision outside the borough.
