Welcome to News on the Kirklees Local Offer


Parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities have told us that we need to improve the ways we communicate with families so we’ve created the News section on the Local Offer as a way of sharing information and reaching out to families.

It will include

  • Updates from services that support you such as SENDACT, Children with a Disability Team, Health services
  • Things that are going on in your community
  • Your stories
  • Chances for you to get involved in helping us improve the services we offer
  • Local and national opportunities relating to SEND
  • National SEND updates


We want the News section to be the place that families can visit to be kept up to date with changes and issues that affect them.


The News section has been developed as a result of parent / carer feedback and will be the central place to get information on SEND in Kirklees. Its main job is to keep families informed but professionals who support children may also find it useful.

How can you get involved?

Parents / Carers – We’d really appreciate your feedback on the News section.  You can leave comments at the bottom of every news article or you can email us directly at to let us know what type of information you would like to see on there. We are listening and want to make things better and easier for you.



Hello, this news feature is a great idea.
