Support for Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and the Local Offer

From September 2014 local authorities transformed the way they offer to help and support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

North East Lincolnshire Council must provide a Local Offer where parents, children and young people aged 0 to 25 years can easily search and access information about specialist and targeted services or activities. Our Local offer brings together all of the information in one place.

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, please use our Local Offer to identify what is available and who you can contact to access this help and support.

Please refer to the North East Lincs SEND and Local Offer to find out what Special Educational Needs are, what school support for SEN is available and what an Educational Health and Care Plan is and how to obtain one. 

Our Local Offer is intended for you and should be shaped by those who access the services. We aim to continually improve the content of our Local Offer, and we need your help to do this. If you have comments or feedback on the Local offer or want to suggest additional information that you feel should be provided on the Council's website then please complete the online feedback form on the North East Lincolnshire Council's website.
