SBRI: Making better use of multi-agency data to provide more effective support for children with SEND

The Education Authority has launched a new ‘Making better use of multi-agency data to provide more effective support for children with Special Educational Needs’ competition under the Small Business Research Initiatives (SBRI) scheme.

The Education Authority is responsible for the education of more than 75,000 children who have a range of special educational needs. Making sure children are assessed and supported requires the involvement of a wide range of stakeholders including educational psychologists, health professionals, social care, school staff and parents.

This competition is aimed at developing innovative solutions to use multi agency data more efficiently and effectively to enable EA to support parents, pupils and stakeholders, and improve the delivery of services and support for pupils with Special Educational Needs.

EA has secured £50,000 funding from SBRI to commission Phase 1 of this project. If successful and further SBRI funding is secured there may be a second and third phase.

EA and SBRI are hosting an information event on Friday 27 September in the Radission Blu Hotel, Belfast. Potential bidders are welcome to attend and learn more about the competition. To register your interest visit:
