Local Offer – How Can The Local Offer Help?

We can help you find services for children and young people with SEND up to the age of 25. You can start finding services by searching on this website.

In addition to helping you find services, the Local Offer:

  • Helps you understand what schools and service providers are required to do for SEND children and young people
  • Helps the parents and carers of young people with SEND find support for themselves
  • Clarifies who is responsible for services for SEND children and young people
  • Gives you the information you need to ensure your SEND child can thrive
