*No training currently available - updated as courses are published*

Are you a parent or carer of a child or young person identified with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) in Central Bedfordshire, or do you know someone who is?

If the answer is yes, then did you know that the Council’s Children’s Services team has a suite of resources to support people in Central Bedfordshire, called the Local Offer?

A Local Offer gives children and young people with SEND and their families a wide range of information about the support services that are available in their local area.  The information covers education, health and social care support and services for people aged between 0 and 25 years.

The Central Bedfordshire Local Offer describes the provision offered in the area but also includes services outside of Central Bedfordshire which are provided jointly by neighbouring local authorities.  It also contains information and resources for families - including support for young people, leisure and recreation groups, clubs and activities, money and benefits advice and information on educaton, health and wellbeing and care.  

We would like to hear your feedback on the content to help us make it clearer, more comprehensive, more accessible and up to date.  If you have any feedback, then please email

You can also follow the Local Offer on Facebook and Sign up to our SEND news email service to receive fortnightly SEND news updates.

International Women's Day:

International Women's Day today is a day to celebrate all the amazing things women have achieved. It is also a way to show how women have influenced, and continue to influence, the world.   As well as celebrating brilliant women, it is also a day to raise awareness about issues that women still face today.

Please find below, a useful powerpoint to support with understanding International Women's Day.
