  • children and young people from birth to 25 years old who have SEND
  • parents and carers of children with SEND

Local offer: SEND support and information

The Local Offer sets out what services, activities and providers are available, and how to access them in what we hope is a clear and accessible way.

If you would prefer to talk so someone about what specific service, activities or providers are on the Local Offer, please email localoffer@lambeth.gov.uk or call the SEND team on 020 7926 9460 and ask to speak with the Local Offer officer. We will then contact you to arrange a meeting or discuss your requirements.


If you don’t speak English well enough to understand the information in the Local Offer, you can use the Google translate button at the bottom of the page to translate it into your language.
