These started as our small MPCF coffee mornings, where we visited various schools and support groups across the city. Eventually, we felt from speaking to parents that it would be useful to get SEND organisations and other support groups to join the coffee mornings so we asked Manchester City Council to get involved. They were kind enough to help us reach various organisations/groups/services and the sessions eventually evolved into what are now the SEND Local Offer Drop-ins.
The monthly drop-ins are all friendly & informal and are a great way to get good information & advice about services & support you could get for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) issues.
Visit the Local Offer website for more information about these SEND drop-ins or scroll down for a list of sessions.
Below are some articles and events related to the drop-ins:
