SEND Local Offer

Welcome to our Local Offer

Our Local Offer is the place that provides and directs you to information that will support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

If your child does not have SEND but you feel they need support in some part of their development, the information on this website can help.

It helps parents, children and young people aged 0 to 25 years find information about specialist and targeted services and activities in North East Lincolnshire.

For a full explanation of the Local Offer watch the Council for Disabled Children video. You can read more about what the Local Offer is on the Council for Disabled Children website. The Local Offer Explained (
