Local Offer is a fantastic website that we are keen to encourage our members to access. We realise that not everyone is aware of what Local Offer is and how it can help you so here is a brief overview of why it exists and how you can make the most of it.
Local Offer is a national initiative, developed as part of the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) reforms. Every local authority must publish a service directory that provides clear, comprehensive and accessible up to date information about the provision available in the local area. Everything an individual needs to know about education, health and care for children and young people up to 25 years old can be found in this directory.
What makes Cheshire West and Chester’s Local Offer unique is the separate area on the website for adults that are looking for support, information and advice services in the local area.
We want to encourage all of our members to include their services in this online directory, not only as a means of promoting valuable services but also to be more aware of what already exists in the area and to encourage collaborations and partnerships. If you are keen to include your services please follow this link.
