Partnership working is at the centre of the South London Commissioning Programme’s approach to improving the quality of services for children and young people in the region.


We work with twelve South London Boroughs across two programme strands: Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Looked After Children (LAC).

Link Maker

The SLCP have partnered with Link Maker, an inter-agency matching service aimed at finding placements for children in care, to develop an IT platform that will be used across the eight South London partner boroughs. The platform enables both providers and local authorities to list placements and referrals, communicate with one another securely and quickly find the best placements for children in care.

Department For Education

The Department For Education awarded The South London Commissioning Programme up to £1 million in funding in 2017 to develop an innovative approach to commissioning placements for children looked after.
