A Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their families information about what support services the local authority think will be available in their local area. Every local authority is responsible for writing a Local Offer and making sure it is available for everyone to see.
The Council For Disabled Children have put together a few useful documents on understanding the Local Offer:
Croydon’s Local Offer of information on services for children and young people covers early years up to age 25 and includes education, health and social care as well as travel, leisure, preparing for adulthood and independent living. Croydon council has recently redeveloped the website - it is the New Croydon Local Offer.
The new website features 'What's On' callendar of local events, activities and workshops.
The web pages provide links to services and there are leaflets attached to most pages that you can download.
The Local Offer was formed in consultation with parents and young people in Croydon and is not an exhaustive list.
