The Local Offer – summary of consultations and feedback 2017
Local Authorities have a duty to publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about services available across education, health & social care for children & young people who have special educational needs or disability. The requirements can be found in The SEND Code of Practice: 0 - 25 years (Chapter 4) and the SEND (Local Offer) Regulations Part 4.
In Slough, the Local Offer has been co-produced with parents and a multi-agency steering group. Some feedback from young people was also included. A Berkshire-wide steering group, which included representatives from the 6 Local Authorities and the Parent Carer Forums, met to develop a common understanding of the requirements and to coordinate the format of information to enhance the sharing of information across borders.
Slough's Local Offer is on the Slough Services Guide and can be found at: http://servicesguide.slough.gov.uk/kb5/slough/services/localoffer.page
We are required to publish a report of the consultation undertaken & feedback received on the Local Offer during the year - see SEND Code of Practice sections 4.21 - 4.25. This report has been produced in a ‘you said - we did' format and is available in the "Useful Documents" section.
