How will the Local Offer help me?

What makes the Local Offer different?
It is more than a directory of services. It brings everything together in one place. It provides all the information you need to help you identify suitable support. You can then make informed decisions about the resources needed, to enable the child or young person with SEND to participate and achieve their outcomes.
The Local Offer is being collaboratively developed by children, young people, their parents and their carers.
The Local Offer will inform joint planning and commissioning of services within Education, Health and Social Care. It is constantly developing based on the feedback received by the local authority.
