Your Local Offer, your way sessions


The SEND Local Offer website 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 website is your ‘go-to’ resource, and that the information on it is clear and easy to find.

‘Your Local Offer, your way’ sessions will run throughout the year. Each session will focus on a particular area of the SEND Local Offer website. 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.

All are welcome, so if you’re 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 and have your say.

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

We are running the following sessions:

November 2022:

We want to develop a set of pages on the SEND Local Offer which provide information and details of support services relating to particular SEND conditions, for example, physical difficulties and dyslexia. We would like to use the November sessions to get feedback on what areas people would like us to cover and how they would like the information presented.
