Special educational needs and disability (SEND) local offer

The SEND local offer describes the help and support available in our area for children and young people aged 0 to 25 years with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families.

With your help, we have developed the SEND local offer website to make it as easy as possible for you to understand what support is available and how to access it. The local offer includes:

  • Education and training options
  • Health and social care services
  • Personal budgets
  • Travel to school and college
  • Leisure and social activities
  • Needs assessments
  • Education, health and care (EHC) plans

If you prefer to get the information in a different way, such as over the phone or in the post, you can contact our Family Information Service and they will help you with this. We also have an outreach team who meet families and professionals in the community and you can request they come along to community groups and events to provide information.
