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 for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. In setting out what they ‘expect to be available’, local authorities should include provision which they believe will actually be available.   (4.1)

The Local Offer has two key purposes:

  1. To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it, and
  2. To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review.

There is also an information sheet which provides details of organisations who provide FREE advice and support (such as phonelines, emails, direct support etc) on a range of matters relating to Special Educational Needs and Disability. It includes impairment specific support, and support available which children, young people, parents and/or professionals can access.
