Dudley's Local Offer

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

Please note: a new and exciting Local Offer website has been developed, which currently is in the final stages of testing. This Local Offer website is no longer being updated and will be removed once the new website goes live.

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.  For details on our effectiveness and implementation please view our recent Joint Area SEND Inspection report and briefings.

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.
