A roadshow for families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is being held in Glenfield on Thursday (7 September). 

Nearly 40 different organisations which support SEND children and their families are expected to attend – the highest number of organisations to visit a roadshow this year. 

The event will take place from 6.30-8.30pm at County Hall, Glenfield, LE3 8RA, and is open to anyone including parents and professionals who would like widen their knowledge, find out about support and access useful information from a range of local SEND services. 

It has been organised by Leicestershire County Council working alongside other local organisations including Leicestershire Music and Menphys. 

It is also the first roadshow of the year to run in the evening, making it accessible for parents and carers who may have missed previous sessions set in the daytime.  

Our SEND local offer roadshows are an important way for us to support the families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. Families and carers can find valuable resources, guidance and discover a network of understanding peers.  

“We have received some really positive feedback from previous attendees, so we are hopeful that families coming along will be able to comfortably share their experiences and find a sense of community. 

Anyone interested in finding out more about the SEND Local Offer roadshow can email  us or book via Eventbrite
