Welcome to Slough’s Local Offer

Slough’s Local Offer provides, in a single website, information for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families. The Local Offer will give information and advice about education, health, social care and other services in Slough. It also has information about services that are available in neighbouring areas or nationally. 

The Local Offer has been developed with parents and carers and other services such as schools, health and local agencies. 

The Local Offer will continue to grow and develop over time to include any changes to services or any new services. We welcome any ideas on how we can improve or add to the website, you can do this by contacting us by using the Contact Us button at the top of this page or you can email or call 01753 476589. 

The local offer is also a resource for professionals to help them understand the range of services and provision within the Slough area.

How to use the Local Offer

The Local Offer should have all the information you need included in it. The information is divided in to several sections to help with finding what you’re looking for. These sections / categories are:

  • Early Years and childcare
  • Education
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Care and support for families
  • Preparing for adulthood
  • Things to do
  • Money and benefits

The Local Offer also includes News and Events, Consultation and feedback and a link to the Children’s Disability Register.

Service records that have additional Local Offer information are identified by the KITE symbol in the top right hand corner of the record. Service providers have been asked to be very clear in the information they provide so that you can see if they are relevant to you.

You can find the information you need in several ways:

  • use the categories in the Local Offer - click on the section you are interested in. You can view all the service records and the information and advice in that section and decide which is most useful to you. The information about services will be in alphabetical order.
  • use the search facilities  - keyword boxes. If you are looking for something specific then you can put the title or name or a word that relates to what you are looking for in the “keyword” box at the top of the page. When you click on “search” a list of services that meet your keyword will be displayed.
  • Search by location - you can add a postcode or place name in the search box to give you information that is close to that postcode. The information can be arranged by distance from your postcode.
  • use the filters - on the left hand side of services pages there are a list of filters such as age, postcode or type of need. You can use these filters to narrow down your search results.

What happens if you can’t find what you’re looking for?

We want to work together with parents, young people and our partners to make the SEND process go smoothly for everyone. Contact details of relevant teams or service to help you with your enquiry is available here.

If you need help to find the information or service you want, you can contact Slough Family Information Service on 01753 476589 or Alternatively you can use the contact us button on the website, complete and submit the form.

It may be that there isn’t a local service that meets your need directly. There maybe a service in a neighbouring area that you can use or there may be a national organisation that can help. Part of the purpose of the Local Offer is to highlight what services are needed in the area. We will use the information you provide to help us plan, monitor and develop appropriate facilities and services for disabled children and their families.
