This event has passed.

The SEND Local Offer Drop-ins are a great way for parents & carers of children or young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) to find relevant information and support. Friendly and informal, please feel free to share your stories and ask questions.

This month’s session will be held in Central Manchester, at Pakistani Community Centre in Longsight.

The drop-ins are usually attended by the following organisations, subject to their availability:

  • Manchester Parent Carer Forum

    We’ll be on hand to listen to your stories and questions. We will try to help and signpost you to the relevant services and organisations who may be able to give you expert advice and support.

  • Local Offer Engagement Team

    Manchester City Council’s Local Offer team organises and hosts these drop-ins. You can talk to them about what’s going on in and around Manchester, including how to find important SEND information via the Local Offer.

  • Early Help Central

  • “About Me” Person-Centred Profiles

    The About Me (AM) document is a person-centred profile that will show professionals across Education, Health and Social Care a snapshot of your child and the kind of support that they need in order to thrive. For those with more complex needs, there is a “More About Me” (MAM) section at the back that can contain even more information that may be of benefit.
