star this property answer text <p>The Children and Families Act 2014 sets out the statutory framework for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), which places a number of duties on local authorities and others. Guidance is provided in the 0-25 SEND Code of Practice. This is available online here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25</a> and is supported by a range of other guidance and information available online both via GOV.UK and on the National Association for Special Educational Needs (Nasen) SEND gateway (https://www.sendgateway.org.uk/).</p><p> </p><p>The government takes the support for children and young people with dyslexia seriously. I recently spoke at a global summit on dyslexia attended by more than 200 people, including industry bodies and organisations, educationalists and over 35 overseas foundations and governments who support dyslexia.</p><p> </p><p>Between April 2017 and March 2018, the department provided £500,000 to the British Dyslexia Association, in partnership with Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties, the Dyspraxia Foundation and Manchester Metropolitan University, to provide support for children and young people with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. This builds on work with dyslexia organisations the government funded in 2013-15 and 2015-16 to facilitate better support for children with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties</p><p> </p><p>This year we are funding Nasen and University College London, on behalf of the Whole School SEND consortium which includes the British Dyslexia Association, to embed SEND into school improvement practice and equip the workforce to deliver high quality teaching across all types of special educational needs (SEN). New SEND regional leads will bring together practitioners and networks in their local area to build a community of practice, help identify regional SEN school improvement priorities and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The government has changed the law to improve how young carers and their families are identified and supported. The Children and Families Act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to identify and assess the needs of all young carers, regardless of who they care for or what type of care they provide. These provisions work alongside those for assessing adults in the Care Act 2014 so that when a young carer is identified the needs of everyone in the family is considered, triggering action from both children’s and adults’ support services.</p><p> </p><p>We funded the Making a Step Change project, which sought to identify, champion and embed best practice around effective integrated whole family pathways between voluntary and statutory sector partners.</p><p> </p><p>In May 2014, NHS England published the ‘Commitment to Carers’ which set out commitments across a range of themes to improve recognition and support for carers, including young carers. As part of NHS England’s work to support young carers, the Young Carers Health Champion Programme was established in July 2016 to support improved health literacy, promote health and wellbeing and develop the capacity of young carers to participate in the planning and development of young carer-friendly services.</p><p> </p><p>There is a wealth of resources that enable local authorities, schools and voluntary sector partners to support young carers and their families, based on evidence of what works. Carers Trust host many of these materials on their websites which can be accessed at either: <a href="http://www.thecarershub.co.uk/" target="_blank">www.thecarershub.co.uk</a> or: <a href="http://www.makingastepchange.info/" target="_blank">www.makingastepchange.info/</a>.</p>
