Special educational needs and disability

All local authorities in the UK are required to publish information about education, health and social care services available in their area for children and young people (0 - 25 years old) who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). This is called the ‘Local Offer’.

The Local Offer:

  • gives information about education, health and family support services
  • gives information about leisure activities and support groups
  • makes service provision more responsive to local needs and aspiration
  • will be developed and reviewed with service users and service providers

The Local Offer is for:

  • children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities (SEND) from 0-25 years
  • parents and carers
  • practitioners and professionals
