North Somerset Services

The Local Offer

In addition to the SENDIAS service, each local authority must publish a ‘Local Offer’.  The local offer tells you what support the local authority expects to be available for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).  It must include information about education, health and care provision and tell you about training, employment and independent living for young people with SEND.  To view the local offer for your area, plus other relevant services provided by your local authority, see below.

Parent Carer Forum

A parent carer forum is an organised group of parents and carers of children and young people with SEND from a local area. They offer a network of support and aim to make sure that services in their area meet the needs of children and young people with SEND by gathering views and challenging when changes or improvements need to be made.
