EHCP Service

Take the stress away from your EHCP process with our very reasonably priced EHCP service packages.

What is an Education Health and Care Plan?

EHCP Advocacy Services
  • If your child has or may have Special Educational Needs (SEN), and these needs have either not yet been fully identified or met then you can submit a ‘Parental Request’ for an ‘Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP) Needs Assessment’ to your Local Authority.
  • An EHCP is designed to bring together all of your child’s; Education, Health and Care needs, alongside the provision needed to meet those needs.
  • The EHC plan secures the provision needed to remove barriers which will enable your child to access education and the right placement to achieve the best possible outcomes. 
  • An EHCP is reviewed, then updated at least annually. This will stay with your child for as long as they are receiving education. This includes; Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Further Education, from the ages of 0-25.
  • The EHCP legal timeframe from beginning to end is 20 weeks. However, this does not include any appeals you might need to submit against Local Authority decisions which you feel are not in the best interests of your child.

How we can help?

We do it for you!

At Operation Diversity we aim to empower you with the right knowledge, tools and inspiration to confidently advocate for your child’s needs to be identified and met in education and at home.

However, we understand that the process can be complex and exhausting. We can offer help with any part of the process, whether it be a simple support call to boost your confidence, a one off package or a full service from beginning to end.

We are able to “jump in and out” at any part of the process offering an individual service tailored to your needs as and when required.

I was very happy with the Report Check Operation Diversity did for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to request the service again or recommend it. Super speedy service and very thorough too. Thank you OD! 5/5 Stars 🌟

I used the EHCP Refusal/Appeal service as I get overwhelmed by how much information there is to collate and highlight. I was worried that if I carried out the appeal paperwork on my own that I would maybe not highlight the important/relevant information. Using the service gave me peace of mind. Jess took all the information I had and turned it into an excellent piece of work and not something that I would have been able to do myself. I’d definitely recommend using this service, it is competitively priced and I’d rate 5 stars for my experience.
