About the Local Offer

What is the Local Offer?

All local authorities are required by the Government to set out and publish a local offer by September 2014.

The purpose of the local offer is to provide clear accessible information about what services are available in the area for parents, children and young people aged 0 – 25 years with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

This is a major part of the SEND reforms which aims to transform the way children, young people and their families can access services and achieve their aspirations.

The local offer is available to those who do not have access to the internet by calling the FISH SEND Information, Advice and Support Service on (01482) 396469.

What will the Local Offer do?

The local offer will provide information on support and provision available for children and young people with SEND from 0 - 25 years.

It aims to make clear the options that are available at a community level right through to specialist and targeted services for children and young people with more complex needs.

How have parent carers and young people been involved?

The local offer was and will continue to be developed with parent carers and young people. Parent carers were involved in the design and layout of the website through focus group meetings, an online survey, user testing, discussions at coffee mornings and parent carer events. East Riding's Parent Carer forum (East Riding Voices in Partnership, ERVIP) also gathered parent carer views. Young people in mainstream and special schools helped with the layout and accessibility of the website. Working with parent carers and young people is at the heart of the local offer.
