Southend's Children and Families Information PointSHIP Adults
Local Offer Annual Report
The purpose of Southend’s  Local Offer is to allow children and young people in the borough, who have Special Educational Needs and/or a disability (SEND), to be able to find information in one place. The Local Offer aims to provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about what services and provisions are available in Southend for parents and young people. The Local Offer is also about making services more responsive to local need and aspirations.
Part of the SEND Code of Practice is that Local Authorities must publish comments about their Local Offer received from or on behalf of children with SEN or disabilities and their parents and young people with SEN or disabilities.
Southend Borough Council wishes to constantly review the Local Offer to ensure that it works for the children and young people of Southend. Our online survey can be found at:
