Information and advice for parents and carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is now easier to access thanks to the launch of Buckinghamshire's 'Local Offer'.

The Local Offer page which has been collaboratively developed by parents, professionals and young people, is a new way of giving children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their parents or carers information about what activities and support are available in their areas.

Statutory services like education, social care and health are included, as well as information about leisure, transport, money advice and independent living, all of which can be searched for by area or age range.

Mike Appleyard, Buckinghamshire County Council's Cabinet Member Education and Skills said: "The Local Offer will help families be better informed and give them access to a comprehensive package of support that meets their needs.

"It will make it easier to find out what you need to know, when you need to know it. Showing you the nearest and most suitable services, letting you give feedback, raise concerns or make a comment or complaint.

"Over the coming months, we will be enhancing the information available on our Local Offer, so we can ensure it is responsive to what families want and need."
