We want to hear from children and young people with SEND!

The Children's Services Department are really interested in the views and experience of children and young people with SEND, as this helps us to have the right services for you! We have a new SEND Children and Young People's page, where you can find out how you can get involved and read our new Youth Inclusive newsletter!

We also have some surveys so you can tell us about your experience during lockdown. You can find the surveys via the link - we would love to hear from you!

The Local Offer provides information about services that children, young people and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for you. What is a ‘Local Offer'?

We are continually reviewing and developing the Local Offer and would welcome your feedback. Please complete our short survey or contact usFor examples of how your feedback has previously been used to develop the website, please follow this link.

Did you know you can download the Local Offer as an icon on your phone?
