Living independently

Introduction

Young people with SEND may start thinking about living independently as they get older. For young people with an EHC plan, this is considered as a part of the annual review process. This area of planning within the EHC plan includes:

  • considering how independently a young person may be able to live
  • help with finding accommodation
  • help with life skills such as travelling alone, handling money or cooking

The following pages will provide more information about where you can live and what choices are available to you in terms of your living arrangements.
