The Local Offer provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place. It shows families what they can expect from a range of local agencies including education, health and social care.
Many parents and carers will have concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have pulled together some Information To Support Families with Children with Special Educational Needs that we hope you will find helpful.
