Disabled Children Service (DCS) and Short Breaks Team relocation

21 October 2015

Dear Parent/Guardian

RE: Disabled Children Service (DCS) and Short Breaks Team relocation

We write to inform you that the Disabled Children Services and Short Breaks Team will be relocating on 30th October 2015 to the following address:

Hackney Learning Trust

1 Reading Lane
London E8 1GQ

Following the recent legislation around the Special Education Needs and Disability reforms, DCS will be moving to become integral to the new way of working with SEN by supporting processes, joining up assessments and having integrated outcomes. This approach will benefit children and young people and help parents feel that services are connected to their children/young person.

The Short Breaks Team will also relocate to Hackney Learning Trust, but will continue to offer Mondays and Thursdays at Hackney Ark to support parents with Short Breaks enquiries.

Below are the contact details:

DCS: 0208 356 6789/4865

Short Breaks: 0208 356 6796

The joint work with Health and Hackney Ark services will continue just in a different way.

Yours Sincerely,

Toni Dawodu

Head of Integrated Services for Disabled Children and their Families
