SEN and disabilities - Local Offer tick

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. 

Local Offer information videos

We have help videos available in English, العربية, 普通話, Polski.

Education, Health and Care plans and assessments

Find out about Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans and assessments. An EHC plan is a legal document that replaces Statement of Special Educational Need and Learning Difficulty Assessments.

Have your say

We have listened to feedback and have tried to make searching for the information you need as quick and easy as possible. If you can't find what you are looking for let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
