Local Authorities

Every local authority must identify education, health and social care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have SEN or disabilities. These services are then put together in an information directory called the Local Offer. It is essentially the services and support that are offered to families who have children or young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

There is a host of information for parents to access around Education, Health and Wellbeing. Parents can also find information on local events, activities and courses run for parents and families.

Please find below links to the Local Offers from the various Local Authorities that we work with at Gesher. We have included, where possible, direct links to pages providing information on courses and events to support you as parents.
