West Sussex County Council SEND ‘Local Offer’

Every local authority has to display their offer of Special Needs Provision and services available for children with disabilities and Special Educational Needs. This is called the ‘Local Offer’. The intention is to offer choice, transparency and information for families, as well as providing a resource for professionals to detail the range of services and provision locally. Find out more about the West Sussex County Council SEND Local Offer here .
