Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Local Offer

The Local Offer is the place on our website that provides and directs you to information that will support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Our Local Offer helps parents, children and young people aged 0 to 25 years find and access information about specialist and targeted services or activities in North East Lincolnshire.

If you think that additional support is required to meet the needs of your child, or if as a young person you would like some extra help, use our Local Offer to identify what services are available to support you.

Our Local Offer is intended for you and should be shaped by those who access the services. To help us shape and improve the Local Offer please give us your feedback by completing our online form Local Offer – Tell us what you think.
