Monitoring support visits are also carried out by the team on a rolling cycle with the intention of supporting providers to understand the complete process of delivering the early entitlement funded placements. Visits also provide an ideal opportunity for face to face contact allowing discussion around any issues that may arise e.g. submitting termly headcounts. Providers are welcome to request a monitoring support visit anytime throughout the year by contacting the team using any of the above contact details.
