KCC SEND Information Hub (Local Offer)

As of September 2014, a new Code of Practice for Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities was introduced by the Government, with statutory guidance for schools, following changes made in the "Children and Families Act 2014". 


Part of the changes made include a requirement that all the local authorities produce a "Local Offer" outlining what the authority offer to support children with SEND. This is the KCC SEND Information Hub (previously known as the ‘Local Offer’).


The intention of the SEND Information Hub is to improve choice, understanding and transparency for families about what support services are available in their local area across education, health and social care for their children. It also signposts how to access these services if they are required.
