New co-produced interim arrangement for the Local Offer work

Local Authorities have a statutory duty to develop and publish a Local Offer that sets out the support they expect to be available for local children and young people with SEND ( Special Educational needs and Disabilities).

Whilst we wait to fill the vacant Local Offer Officer post, West Sussex County Council and Health Service have asked for an interim, co-produced review of their Local Offer website and key partners will be the SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS), Family Information Services (FIS) and West Sussex Parent Carer Forum (WSPCF). The Parent Carer Forum are leading on engagement with families with children and young people with SEND to develop and review the Local Offer.

If you are a parent carer and would like to help with this please contact [email protected]
