The Children and Families Act places a duty on every local authority to publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information on the provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people (from 0-25 years) who have SEN and disabilities (SEND). It is a front door for information about provision from the local authority, health, schools and other educational settings and the voluntary sector.
The Local Offer has two main purposes:
- to provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available; and
- to make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving children and young people with SEN, parents carers, and service providers in its development and review.
Our Local Offer has been planned and produced with parents, carers, services across the local authority and health, schools, colleges and early years settings and voluntary sector colleagues.
We welcome your views on all aspects of provision for the young people of Northumberland. To this end we would be grateful for your thoughts and comments through our survey.
