The balanced system project is taking place to ensure all Children’s therapy services across Essex and Southend are working to a common Framework. Children’s therapies includes speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. Its aim is a single delivery plan of children’s therapies through the framework known as the Balanced System.

EFF has helped to collect views and experiences of families to inform this work. You can find out more by clicking here (Essex : The Balanced System)

On November 16th 2022 we hosted an event for parents/carers and professionals to find out more about the work that has been done on the planned implementation of the Balanced System project for children’s therapies in Southend Essex and Thurrock. Below is a copy of the slides presented at this event regarding the balanced system as well as a frequently asked question document addressing a number of questions that were raised by those who attended.
