Your Local Offer

Find out about services, groups and activities for families of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities

You can find everything you need about education, health and care for children and young people up to 25 years old to help make the most of what’s on offer.

You don’t need to have had a Statement of Special Education Needs or an Education, Health & Care Plan to use the Local Offer, but you might need one to be eligible for some of the services on the directory.

You can use our directory to find what services, groups and information is available and use the resources here to help answer your questions and make choices.

How did Local Offer start?

The Local Offer started because of changes in the law about Special Education Needs and Disabilities, known as the SEND Reforms.
