Part 2: National Audit Office assess support for young adults with SEN

The National Audit Office (NAO)  released a report last year which assessed the provision available to young adults who have special educational needs.

The report, which I wrote about in November, revealed a postcode lottery and wasteful spending. However none of the data collected was made publicly available, so I submitted a Freedom of Information request through What Do They Know? asking for a copy of the nationwide breakdown compiled by National Audit Office (NAO).

The NAO still haven’t responded to the request, making it overdue by more than 40 working days. Nick Lacy, Head of Policy and Legal Advice at NAO, explained that the FOI involves “some complex datasets” and that the NAO is “consulting with the organisations who provided us with these datasets.” Their response is available here.
