SEND Reforms

 Local Offer for SEND

 

The Staffordshire ‘Local Offer’ is available for parents, children and young people with SEND  and professionals, to browse the many locally based services that are available.

The local offer gives children and young people, parents and professionals more choice and control over their care and support by hosting details of local schools, health and care partners. You can find more by linking through to the Local Offer website.  

If you live in Stoke-on-Trent , you can access the local offer here for your area.

Getting your service included

The local offer provides a comprehensive resource for professionals to understand the range of services and provision within their area, so it’s really important that as much information from as many services from across the county are available.

So, if you provide services that support young people on Staffordshire: 

  •  who have education, health and care plans, and who may request an assessment
  • who do not have a plan but who need support through universal services
  • who require specialist support

then complete just one form in minutes and become part of this new useful ‘one stop shop’ for families and professionals.
