Trafford SEND Local Offer Explained

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)


Every local authority must identify education, health and social care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have Special Educational Needs or who are Disabled (SEND).

When we refer to our local offer, we mean all the services and organisations which are part of the support on offer in Trafford. We include information about services provided outside our local area that local people are likely to use. 

You can access the local offer online via the Trafford Directory or by phone or post by contacting the Family Information Service .

We also have an outreach team who meet families and professionals in the community and you can request they come along to community groups and networking events if you think this would be useful.

How to use Trafford's SEND Local Offer


Tell us what you think

We work with lots of parents, young people, service providers and partner organisations such as Trafford Parent Forum to continually develop our local offer. We want children, parents and young people to keep letting us know what the local offer here in Trafford should be, and how you think people should be able to access it.

Working to improve your Local Offer

We have a SEND Communication and Engagement group where representatives from a range of education, health and care services sit alongside parent groups and people responsible for engaging with young people. This group works hard to develop our local offer. Find out more at How SEND is managed in Trafford
