What is the Local Offer
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
Welcome to Croydon’s Local Offer of information on services for children and young people with special needs and their families. The information 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.
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. The aim of the Local Offer is to outline services but any individual submissions for inclusion will be considered
If you or a person needing information on SEN do not have access to a computer or the internet you can:
- Use the public computers in Access Croydon, Bernard Weatherill House, Mint Walk, Croydon CR0 1EA
- Use a computer (free of charge) in any Croydon library
There will be limited printed copies available in schools, colleges and local voluntary organisations.
You can also contact SENreform@croydon.gov.uk to request copies of leaflets.
