Get involved in our SEND Local Offer
We're speaking to lots of parents, carers, young people with SEND and professionals as we develop Bracknell Forest’s Local Offer. We want to get ideas from the people who want or need to use the Local Offer.
Please get in touch if you'd like to have your say on what's in the local offer and in how the information is presented.
The Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their families information about support services that are available.
Who the Local Offer is for
The Local Offer will help parents, carers, children, young people, practitioners and professionals to see clearly which services and support across education, health and social care, are available locally.
What it must include
The Local Offer must include information about the services available in Bracknell Forest including:
- education, health care and social services provision
