What is the Local Offer?

Gloucestershire County Council has a legal duty to publish a ‘Local Offer’ that lists all the activities, opportunities and support services available to families who have disabled children and young people aged up to 25.  It must include information about education, health and care provision as well as training, employment and independent living for young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

This Local Offer brings together all the useful information on a single website so that families and professionals working with them have a ‘one-stop shop’ for the information they need.

For further details, please see the Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) factsheet, or read the Code of Practice for Local Authorities.
