What information we use to develop our SEND Local Offer website so it meets the needs of children and young people with SEND.

We constantly review our Local Offer and respond to feedback from everyone using our website and services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Your feedback

We welcome feedback from parents, carers, children and young people using the SEND Local Offer to find services and support. You can give us feedback by filling out our Local Offer website feedback form.
