Looking for support and information in your area?

There are many support services, charities and voluntary organisations in the UK. Some support families nationwide, others are local specific. Search Google for"autism support" and "**your area**" and you should find a local organisation.


All local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care available to children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities). The local offer brings together information into one place.  It helps children and young people with SEND up to the age of 25 and their parents understand what services and support they can expect locally. This includes their statutory entitlements which are required by law. 

Search on Google  for   "**your area**" and "local offer" and you should be able to find your local services. 

This is what Leeds Local Offer looks like:!/directory
