Dudley's Local Offer

Supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Dudley Dog LogoDudley’s Local Offer is a one stop resource of information and services available to children and young people (aged 0 -25) with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), their parents, carers and families.

We aim to help you to make informed, positive choices and decisions by bringing together the range of services and support on offer across Dudley Borough, including details on how to access them.  There is a wealth of information on areas such as education, health and social care, training and employment, leisure and support to prepare you for adulthood.

Dudley’s Local Offer includes information and services for children and young people with the most complex of needs and with an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP), as well as children and young people who have less complex needs but their additional needs mean they require Special Educational Needs (SEN) support. 

 

Preparing for adulthood

Young people want to have full lives with control and choices about their future. Our transitions team work with young people (14-25) with complex needs and a range of disabilities, and their carers, to support them as they become adults.

SEND Code of Practice

The Children and Families Act 2014, requires local authorities to set out a 'local offer' of support available for children and young people (Aged 0-25 years old) and their families who are disabled and/or have special educational needs. Read more about SEND Code of Practice.
