SEN Local Offer

The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND). This is known as the local offer. 

In Somerset, the Local Offer can be found on the []Somerset Choices website.

SEND News shares some information about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) 0-25 in Somerset. If you would like to be added to receive the newsletter by email, please email
