Celebrating one year of the Essex Local Offer website

The Essex Local Offer provides help for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

It brings together education, parent support, activities, health and social care to improve access to services.

Since the launch of its website a year ago, the Local Offer has passed significant milestones.

More than 400 services are now available to support children and young people with SEND. That’s a 38% rise.

Over 1,000 families have also come to our 32 Local Offer roadshows across the last two years.

The Essex Local Offer is a major part of improving our SEND services. Visit the website to see how it can help you, a friend or a family member.

You can also tell us about any services you think should be in the Local Offer.
