Answered By: 
The Mayor

Thank you for your report 'Together: Transforming the lives of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in London' which highlights the significant challenges that young people with SEND and those who support them are facing.  I want London to be an inclusive city that provides opportunities for all young people to achieve their goals.  I have responded to your report in my letter of 3 October 2018 which sets out activity already underway through my strategies and programmes, as well as where I can act on the recommendations to do more for children and young people with SEND.
