Durham's Local Offer

What is the Local Offer?

Every local authority must publish a Local Offer. The Local Offer tells you what support the local authority expects to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. It must include information about education, health and care provision. It should also tell you about training, employment and independent living for young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities. 

County Durham Families Information Service provides more information on the Local Offer for County Durham Council

Who is it for?

The Local Offer is for:

  • children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities from birth to 25
  • their parents and carers
  • practitioners and professionals

What should the Local Offer do?

The Local Offer should:

  • make it easier to find out what you need to know
  • give you information about what is available
  • tell you where you can get further information
