SEND Directory

Search the SEND Directory

Search our directory for organisations that provide information, advice, support or activities in Lancashire and nationally, if relevant.

You should always check that the service or organisation meets your own requirements by contacting them directly. We do not carry out checks on individual providers, services and events on your behalf.

We try to keep information about groups and activities up to date, but  please contact the service or organiser before you go to check the date and time. Places are limited for some activities so you may need to book a place in advance.

Include your service

If you would like your organisation or service to be listed in the Lancashire SEND Directory, please create an account, or if you're already registered, sign in to update your details. To be included, services must meet our terms and conditions.

Accessing information

If you don't have access to the internet, you can get help to access the information online at schools, plus some libraries.

If you'd like to receive updates about SEND in the local area you can receive a free newsletter, by joining the FIND database or connecting to the local offer on Facebook.

We have reviewed the local offer to help us improve the information and make the site easier to use and would welcome your feedback, as we’d love to hear what’s working well and what still needs to be done.
