What is a Local Offer?

In response to concerns from parents and others that they find it hard to access information about what support is available, the Children and Families Act 2014 requires every local authority in England to publish a ‘Local Offer’.

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice 2014 (“the Code of Practice”) states that “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 [Special Educational Needs] or are disabled, including those who do not have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan.”
