Offers a vital resource

SEND Local Offer

The Children and Families Act (2014) places a statutory duty on local authorities to publish a Local Offer website – a guide to all the services in their area for children and young people (aged 0-25) with SEND. This online resource offers information about the services available to families, children and young people within the local area. Developed in consultation with parents, professionals and young people themselves, the website is a vital resource offered by Family Information Service teams across the country.

Many of the SEND-related service providers required for the Local Offer –early years, schools, support and community groups – will already exist in the council’s directory. Our solution can seamlessly populate a specific Local Offer website, leveraging existing information to drive efficient information management and provide a simple, consistent and intuitive message for children, young people and their families.
