Welcome to the Southampton Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) 'Local Offer'.
This website has been co-produced with parents, professionals and young people and is under continuous development. It is a single place for you to find up to date Information about Services and Support for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and disability aged 0-25.
All of these services, settings and activities make up Southampton's 'SEND Local Offer'.
It is our vision for this site to be a truly meaningful information tool for parents and their children and young people with SEND.
This is by no means the finished product but we'd really like to hear what you think of the site so far - hints and tips for improvement are very welcome. Give feedback here.
Due to the proximity to Hampshire Local Authority, some children, young people and parent carers use services within that area. Visit the Hampshire Local Offer website for more information about their services for children and young people with SEND.
If you provide a service appropriate for families and would like to publicise it here, please add a record.
The Code of Practice states that Local Authorities have to publish an annual report of comments made and actions taken, about the Local Offer and the provisions that we offer. It has been a year since Southampton first published our Local Offer and this report outlines how we have worked with children, young people and families over the year, the progress we have made, what we have learnt and our next steps to continue to improve this service.
