Parents' involvement and communications

You can attend one of the 12 local parent carer forums to find out local, regional and national information that is relevant to you and your family. These forums are a place for parents to have their voice heard, raise local concerns and provide parent to parent support.

You can get up-to-date information from the SEND local offer, the FIND Newsletter and social media.

  • The FIND newsletter is free to all families that live in Lancashire that include a child with SEND who have registered on the FIND Database
  • The SEND local offer is the first point of contact for all families that include a child with SEND and has a wealth of information. The local offer will evolve through individual parent feedback and partnership working.
  • Lancashire County Council has a local offer Facebook page which provides information about services across the county for families of children with special educational needs and/or a disability (SEND), covering areas including health and social care, education, early years, finance, transport, leisure activities and support groups.

To find out more about any of the above services or become involved please contact:
