The Local Offer provides information for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.
It gives information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and more control over what support is right for your child.
The Local Offer provides information on a number of things, including:
- special educational provision
- health provision
- social care provision
- other educational provision
- training provision
- travel arrangements for children and young people to schools, colleges and early years education
- preparing for adulthood, including housing, employment and leisure opportunities
The Local Offer has been produced jointly by South Tyneside Council, Social Care and Health Services in partnership with parents and carers. It aims to help us to make sure that we are providing the sort of services that families have told us they need.
