EALS has been saved until (at least) March 2020!
The Secondary Schools have reversed their decision to pull funding and there will be ongoing negotiations on how the service can continue beyond 2020.
We have also been informed that the Consulatation received over 800 individual responses, which is an incredible result and very likely a key factor in this decision.
We are so grateful to everyone involved, and everyone who completed the Consultation. A win for community action and a brilliant result for the vulnerbale users of this essential service!
Two brilliant local articles on this can be found here:
