The Exchange Website - supporting pupils with SEND

The Xchange website has moved to a new home

The Xchange website is for families that have children who are disabled. It has moved to sit on Dorset Council's website, alongside our SEND Local Offer.


 Registering with The Xchange gives parents and carers access to:

  • a discount card for local activities and attractions, called the Dorset Max Card
  • a monthly newsletter, jam packed with relevant information for our members
  • a Care Passport for disabled children participating in Short Breaks
  • a directory of Short Breaks, activities and support


We’ve moved the website to:

  • make the information clearer and easier to find
  • ensure the site is fully accessible, especially for people with disabilities 
  • make it easier for families and professionals to see the information they’re most interested in
  • save money by only paying for one website


The old web link still works:, so please continue to share this with families that will benefit.
