Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Local Offer

Every local authority must identify education, health and care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have Special Educational Needs or who are Disabled (SEND).

When we refer to our SEND local offer, we mean all the services and organisations which are part of the support on offer in Trafford. Our SEND local offer website is the tool we use to communicate this so you understand what is available and how to access it.

With your help, we have developed the local offer website to make it as easy as possible for you to find what you are looking for and to make sure our information is accurate and up to date. Publishing our local offer helps us to see where the gaps in provision are. We include information about services provided outside our local area that local people are likely to use.

If you prefer to get the information in a different way, such as over the phone or in the post, you can contact our Family Information Service and they will help you with this. We also have an outreach team who meet families and professionals in the community and you can request they come along to community groups and networking events if you think this would be useful.
