Local Offer

The Children and Families Act (2014) outlines the requirements for local authorities to publish information on services and provision across education, health and social care for children and young people aged 0 - 25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), this is called the Local Offer. The purpose of a local offer is to enable parents and carers to see more clearly what services are available for children with SEND in their area and how to access them. This extends to early years settings and the document below entitled 'Send Local Offer Richmond Preschool' forms our local offer and shows how we have, for many years, provided for children with special educational needs and disabilities.

You may also wish to take a look on the Essex County Council Local Offer page http://www.essexlocaloffer.org.uk/ . This gives details of the services and support groups on offer in Essex for families of children with SEND.
