Your Local Offer, your way sessions

The SEND Local Offer is your guide to services and support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) living in Southend. We want to make sure the Local Offer is your 'go-to'; resource, and that the information on it is clear and easy to find.

'Your Local Offer, your way' sessions run every half term throughout the year. Sessions focus on a particular topic or area of the SEND Local Offer. They are an opportunity for you to tell us what information you need, so that we can make sure the Local Offer is working for you.

Everyone is invited to participate, so if you are a young person with SEND, a parent carer of a child or young person with SEND, or if you support children and young people with SEND and their families, please come along.

You can join us at a face-to-face or virtual meeting, or can email your suggestions to us at

To keep up to date with future 'Your Local Offer, your way' session dates and topics, please follow us on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to the monthly SEND e-newsletter.

Dates for sessions running between September 2023 and July 2024 will be published on this page soon. We look forward to hearing your views.
