Special Educational Needs and Disabilities - Local Offer Information

The Local Offer

From September 2014, in accordance with the Children and Families Act, all local authorities must publish a local offer. The Local Offer must set out, in one place, information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), including those with or without Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans.

Local Offer is a website in Swindon for children & adults who have support needs, giving you correct information and advice at any time. You can find out more information here: Swindon Local Offer
