Personal Budgets for Special Educational Needs

What is a Personal Budget?

A Personal Budget for SEN is money identified to pay for support specified in an Education, Health and Care plan (EHC plan) for a child or young person with special educational needs. It can give choice and control over how part of the provision in an EHC Plan is delivered.

It can include funds from the local authority for education and social care and from the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for health and can contribute to a person centred support package for a family. Each type of personal budget has different legislation governing it so they do not all work in the same way.
