This is a Legal Advice Workshop run by Melinda Nettleton – Director of SEN Legal 

Getting the right support for adults over age 25 who have special educational needs, a disability or health condition.

Once a young person reaches 25 the EHCP Plan falls away. Funding is then from Adult Social Care or NHS Continuing Healthcare. Exactly the same procedure for NHS Continuing Healthcare applies at 26, 86 or 106.  Same applies to powers of attorney and Deputyship in the Court of Protection.  Do you have any idea what your rights will be?

This workshop will focus on the transfer from children’s to adult’s services and about the interaction between social services help and that available under NHS Continuing Healthcare: whether your child or relative has autism, a learning disability, dementia or a health care condition – the law really is the same.

There is no need to wait until things are desperate; this workshop can support you on your way to securing a suitable level of the right sort of services to meet your relative’s needs.
