SEN and disabilities - Local Offer
Welcome to the County Durham Local Offer
The Local Offer is the place to find information for families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Here you will find a wide range of useful information with details on services that may help you or your child as they progress into adulthood from birth to 25.
How to use the Local Offer
To find what you need, please select a topic or age category. You can also search by keyword(s) and/or postcode/location. You can narrow (filter) results, show results on a map, or even add results to a shortlist to tailor them to your child and family's needs. Further details about your search can be found in the more information area.
