Our Local Offer team and how they can help you

Services within the Leicestershire Local Offer

Our Children and Family Services sit under the education and social care umbrella, when thinking about Special Educational Needs and Disability, and offer a wide range of services for families within Leicestershire. Some are specialist services for children and young people with SEND, others will support a range of children and young people:

In response to what young people and families have told us, we have developed a series of short videos of professionals talking about their roles. The “Meet the team” videos are here to help you understand what support is available, how you can access it and what to expect from their service.
