Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) Local Offer

Your local council, the local NHS and other organisations collaborate to provide education, health, social care services and other types of support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) from birth to 25.

SEND services are developed alongside children, young people and their families to ensure they best meet local needs (this is known as the Local Offer)

All information about your SEND Local Offer is available on a SEND Local Offer website so that parents and young people and professionals have the information they need in one place.  

Websites show what services families can expect from a range of local agencies (including their entitlements) so that children and young people with special educational needs can be educated and enjoy social opportunities alongside their peers, in their local community.
