The Local Offer brings together helpful and useful information for children and young people with SEND, from birth to 25 years, and their families. The information is contained within this website, which will enable you to search for services and provision within your own community and Nottinghamshire as a whole. This will cover public services that are available within:
- Education: e.g. nurseries, playgroups, schools and colleges as well as support services like educational psychologists, early years and early intervention workers.
- Health: e.g. GPs, school nurses, therapists and mental health support.
- Social care: e.g. respite services and children’s disability services.
It will also enable you to find out what support and services are available in the voluntary and private sectors, for example from charities and disability groups.
As well as containing many records of different services, the Local Offer is a really useful source of information, advice and guidance. For example, on Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans, support for special educational needs in schools and transitions.
