About the Local Offer
Welcome to Medway's Local Offer of help and support to children and young people who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The new Children and Families Act has changed the law, giving children, young people and their parents greater control and choice in decisions and ensuring that needs are properly met.
The starting point for our Local Offer is this new part of our website where we are bringing together all of the information on services that support children and young people with SEND.
It is a one-stop shop for everything you need to know and every service you might need to access, including:
- Health, such as doctors, nurses and therapists
- Medway's Education Services - support for children with special educational needs and disabilties (SEND)
- Medway's Social Care and support and
- Education - such as nurseries, pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools,special schools plus local colleges and a variety of support services
It covers all of the support groups in the voluntary sector, as well as leisure activities and short breaks. It also includes information for young adults up to the age of 25 years.
Our Local Offer has been developed with the help of local families – but it will continue to grow. We want to hear from you about how we can improve our Local Offer.
