What is a "Local Offer" and why do we need one?

Making the Local Offer accessible and available

We need to make sure that all groups of people can get access to the information in the Local Offer.

This includes:

  • those without access to the internet
  • people with special educational needs (SEN) and / or disability
  • people with English as an additional language (EAL)

The Local Offer website already has many accessible features which will help people to access the information including:

  • accessible font
  • text only version
  • high contrast version
  • Dyslexia friendly colour scheme
  • ability to change font size throughout
  • Google translate in community languages
  • Text to speech function 

Go to Accessibility features.

We have already identified other ways in which we might make the Local Offer more accessible in the future such as, creating more accessible guides to services.

Printing pages from the Local Offer

You can print sections using the print icon shown top right of every page.  If you don't have access to printing and would like a printed copy of a particular section or document you can request these using the Contact Us form on this site.

For users without access to the internet

We suggest that users without internet make use of the public computers at their local library, or ask at their child’s school or college if it is possible to view the Local Offer there. Printed copies of any pages can be requested using the Contact Us form on this website or contact the Children and Young People's Disability Service to ask for these pages to be sent.  This advice has been included on leaflets about the Local Offer which will be widely distributed across both boroughs.
