What is the Local Offer?
The Local Offer is a way of letting families know the services that are available locally and how to access them; from specialist social care services, to universal sports activities. It’s also a way of finding out which services we need in Newcastle.
The Local Offer has two key purposes:
- To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it
- To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review
In Newcastle, information about services available to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families, are published on the Local Offer website
