The Local Offer
All local authorities working with their partners must publish information about how children and young people aged 0 - 25 who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported in their area. This is known as the Local Offer. It is a ‘front door’ to information on SEND provision from the Local Authority, Health, schools and settings, and the voluntary sector. The Local Offer includes information on:
- Universal services that are available to everyone, such as schools and GPs
- Targeted support and services for children and young people who may need some additional, short term support
- Specialist services for children and young people who have complex needs and need longer term specialised support
The Local Offer will develop and improve over time in response to feedback and consultation with parents, carers, children and young people.
