Travel help if you have an Education, Health and Care Plan
This information tells you how to make a transport application for a child with a statement or an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan.
This is the process for statutory school age children.
You can apply using a form on the County Council website, or you can phone Somerset Direct on 0300 123 2224 to ask them to send you a form.
When we receive your application we will assess it within 10 days.
We will send you a letter if we do not agree that you can have travel assistance, telling you the reasons why.
If we agree that you can have travel assistance, we will send your details to Transporting Somerset for them to make arrangements.
The Transport Officer will contact you to carry out a risk assessment over the phone, to make sure that suitable transport is provided.
We will then send you a letter telling you what the arrangements will be.
