Independent Supporters Westminster is a service provided by the national charity Kids. Kids works to enable disabled children and young people and their families to enjoy their lives.

Its Independent Supporters are trained to help families and young people through the new Education, Health and Care Plan assessment, planning and development process. It will help parents and young people to understand, be supported and feel confident during the transitional period of Education, Health and Care (EHC) assessments and plans.

The service is for families involved in the new Education Health and Care assessment and planning process and those transferring from Statements of SEN and Learning Difficulty Assessments over to an Education, Health and Care Plan.

There is an open referral system. Parents can ring or e-mail to make a referral into the service. Young people 16 and over can access the service in their own right or with the support of their parents.
