AN EVENT will showcase the services available for children, young people and families with special educational needs and disabilities.

Charity Portsmouth Parent Voice, which supports parents and carers of children with disabilities, has organised Local Offer Live.

Running for the third year, it gives families the chance to find out more about the services offered within the city which can help them.

A spokeswoman said: ‘The event has been successful in the past with positive feedback from parents saying they felt better informed, discovered new support services and met others in similar situations to theirs.’

The event is tomorrow at Miltoncross Academy, in Milton, between 10am and 3pm.
