Local Offer – One-stop-shop for information for parent carers.
The Children and Families Act requires every local authority to bring together in one place information that might be helpful to parents of children with SEN and disabilities and young people with SEN and disabilities.
This is called the Local Offer. You can find Herefordshire’s Local Offer by ‘Googling’ that phrase or by following the link below:
As well as drawing your attention to it because it’s a really useful source of information, the local authority is very keen to have feedback from parent carers in order to improve the content, accessibility and search ability of the Local Offer.
We would therefore encourage you to have a look at the Local Offer and use the Feedback button on the website to give your feedback (mentioning that you heard about it through the Parent Carer Voice!).
If you are really keen, you can compare it to what is required under the Local Offer Regulations by following the link below:
