Solihull’s Additional Needs Strategy 2022 - 2025

For children and young people with special educational needs or additional needs (aged 0-25 years)

"Every child and young person matters, and matters equally"

It takes a community to raise a child

We are proud of all our children and young people in Solihull. Most children and young people do well but we know that some need more support than others or may need help to get ready for their future life. For these children and young people, services in Solihull are committed to working in a way which helps them have the best life possible - so we have been talking to them about how we can help.

When we use the word ‘we’ in this strategy it means:

  • Solihull Council (for education, social care and communities)
  • Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group [CCG] (for health) - this will be replaced by the Integrated Care Board in July 2022
  • Solihull Parent Carer Voice (parent carer forum)
  • Our Voice’s Heard (children and young people’s forum)

We will ask everyone else working with children and young people to support this work.

We have listened to the views of children, young people, parent carers and those who work with these families. They have also worked with us to decide what we need to change and how to do this so we could write this strategy together.

Young people and their parent carers have helped us write something that is easier for everyone to read and understand - written with them and for them.
