We are required by the Government to set out and publish a ‘Local Offer’. The purpose of the ‘Local Offer’ is to provide clear accessible information about services available in the area, for parents and young people.

The local offer must:

  • Provide information on provision from birth to 25 across education, health and social care
  • Make clear the options that are available at a community level right through to specialist and targeted services for children and young people with more complex needs.
  • Be developed in conjunction with parent and carers and young people

If you would like further information on Torbay’s implementation of the SEND Reforms or would like further information about how to participate, please contact us or visit  our Local Offer in Torbay Opens in a new window page on the Family Information Service Directory.
