Within the SEND Team at Bedford Borough we have a dedicated Post 16 team to advise, support and arrange where appropriate the right provision for young people with Education Health and Care Plans.

The Access to Work fund is one way to seek financial support to enable young people to access learning and work opportunities. There are also national organisations that can provide advice and support in this area.

You may be eligible for supported transport to your place of education. Please read the Post 16 Transport Policy for further information.
