Check out the latest information and advice on coronavirus (COVID-19).
Welcome to Derby’s Local Offer - a hub of information and advice for children and young people from 0 to 25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families. To understand more, please see What is the Local Offer.
What is SEND? Children and young people with SEND all have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children and young people of the same age. These children and young people may need extra or different help from that given to others.
We’ve teamed up with Parent Carers Together (PCT) to offer some brilliant online support for parents through the coronavirus outbreak. We’ve got 500 free places on offer for the Operation Diversity Academy website, a leading online support and training resource. Membership usually costs £14.99 per month but, in partnership with PCT, we’re offering a limited number of memberships for free to parents of children with special educational needs or disabilities.
