SEND 0-25 years: Hertfordshire's local offer

Last updated on 16 April 2021

The Local Offer lets parents and young people know what special educational needs and disabilities services are available in Hertfordshire, and who can access them.

What is the SEND Local Offer?

Every local authority must identify education, health and social care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have SEN or disabilities. These services are then put together in an information directory called the Local Offer. It is essentially the services and support that are offered to families who have children or young people with special educational needs and disabilities, from across the county.

If you have a child or young person with SEND, then think of the Local offer as all of the services and support available to them, and to you as a parent or carer.

The Local Offer website

The Local Offer website lets parents and young people know what special educational needs and disabilities services are available in Hertfordshire, and who can access them. We provide information about SEND services across education, health and social care, and aim to give families all the information they may need in one place.

The website includes information on:

  • early years (ages 0 - 5)
  • support for parents, carers and siblings
  • services for all areas of needs
  • preparing for adulthood (ages 16 - 25)
  • money
  • education health and care plans
  • education support
  • parent courses and training
  • activities and events for young people and short breaks
