What is the local offer?
Every local authority must identify education, health and social care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have Special Educational Needs or who are Disabled (SEND). These services must be included in an information directory called the local offer.
A local offer includes many different types of services that children and young people may need, including support services in school, short breaks, health services, leisure activities, travelling to school or college, training for work and help for young people to move towards independence in adulthood.
