This resource is a partnership between education, health, social care, the voluntary and private sector. It is intended to provide you with information relevant to children and young people aged 0 to 25 years with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Its aim is to bring as much of this information together within one website or where appropriate to provide links to take you through to other relevant sources of information.
You can search the site using a number of different filters, either individually or in combination. These include searching by:
- post code
- type of need
- category (e.g. education, health. things to do etc)
- age range
- type of provision (universal, targeted or specialist)
The information within the SEND Local Offer will continue to grow and develop in line with what children, young people and their families tell us that they want to see. For it to be successful and of value we need to understand what you think of it and how you want to see it progress.
"Rate and Review" enables you to give a star rating and to comment on particular services or events that you or your child accesses. You can find out more about this facility by watching the film "Giving feedbackon the Local Offer", which is number 7 in the list of "How To" videos on the Local Offer home page.
We would also like to know your thoughts on the SEND Local Offer site itself, for example what you like or don't like, whether you found it easy to search for the information you were looking for etc. You can do this by completing the electronic survey on the front page of the website. It should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and will be very useful in helping us develop the website as we go forward.
If there is a service or provision which you're aware of but which isn't currently part of the SEND Local Offer then please e-mail the details to the address below and we'll do our best to ensure that its is included. (We are reliant on providers sharing their information with us so we can't guarantee that everything will be included, but we will do our best). You can send details to:
