The Local Offer

The Local Offer for children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities

The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 years of age who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).

This is known as the ‘Local Offer’.

The Local Offer has two key purposes:

  • To provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities available.

  • To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving children and young people with SEND, parents and carers, and service providers.
