What is the Local Offer? Practitioners

The Local Offer provides clear and accessible information about the provision Wandsworth Borough Council expects to be available locally for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

As part of the new Children and Families Act, Local Authorities have been directed to produce a Local Offer. Wandsworth Borough Council, health services and all our partners in the voluntary and private sectors are committed to working together to support the needs of children and young people with SEND and their families. We have worked closely with parents, carers and young people, as well as with colleagues in all the services in Wandsworth to produce our Local Offer, and will continue to do so.

The Local Offer website sets out what services are offered by a range of local agencies.  It also sets out childrens' and families’ statutory entitlements, eligibility conditions and referral criteria. The Local Offer makes clear what is available from early years settings, schools (including Academies and Free Schools), colleges and other services including those from health and social care.

Local offer information for practitioners includes, Education Health and Care needs assessments and how to use them to create:

  • Education Health and Care plans, including;
  • Personal Budgets and
  • Direct Payments.

Local Offer website advice for schools includes:
