Local Offer Live!
Want to know more about the support available in Portsmouth for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)?
Come along to Local Offer Live, our free information event for parents and carers on Wednesday 7 December 2022 from 10am to 2pm at Portsmouth Central Library.
The event will be held on the third floor of Central Library in the Menuhin room. There’s no need for a ticket, just drop in between 10am and 2pm.
You will be able to speak to 14 community groups and organisations about the support on offer for children and young people (up to 25 years old) with SEND. You can also watch short presentations from local professionals on ‘progressing through primary to secondary education’ and ‘an introduction to neurodiversity now.’
Cllr Suzy Horton, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Children, Families and Education at Portsmouth City Council said:
“The need for parents and carers to have access to services has become more urgent in current times. Information is a powerful tool that supports families to live a happy and healthy life in the city. The pandemic stopped many face to face events from happening which limited how communities access services.
“The new Local Offer Live events are a fantastic way for local residents to find out more about services for children and young people aged 0-25 who have special educational needs and or disabilities. It will also be a chance to catch up with friends over a coffee at Lily and Lime as we know so many people value the social element.”
