Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

8/18/2021 10:51:31 AM

The Local Offer for SEND is a free hub of services for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). 

Local providers and schools publish the support they offer to people aged 0 to 25. This information covers what support should be available, how to access it, and any further support on offer.

The SEND Local Offer has two basic purposes:

  1. To provide clear, detailed, and accessible information about services and support available.
  2. To ensure that young people with SEND and their parents and carers are listened to when local services are developed and reviewed.
