What is the Local Offer?
Birmingham’s Local Offer
Local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision that is available and provision that is expected to be across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
The Local Offer has two main purposes:
- To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it
- To make provision responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving children and young people with SEND, their parents, and the professionals who work with them in its development and review
What will the Local Offer cover?
The Local Offer will help you to find information about what universal, targeted and specialist provision is available for children and young people with SEND in Birmingham and how to access different types of services and support.
