The Local Authority publishes and keeps under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) ages 0-25. This is called the ‘Local Offer’.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice for families and will also be an important resource for parents/carers in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.

The Local Offer can be found on the County Durham Families Information Service website:
