Ealing's Local Offer
Welcome to Ealing's Local Offer for children and young people, from 0-25 years who have SEN and/or disability, and their families.
The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families and information is published as part of the SEND reforms under the Children and Families Act 2014.
The Local Offer has been produced by the council with parents who have children with special educational needs and/or disability. However, we will be seeking to consult more widely on the content, accessibility and presentation shortly.
In the meantime we want to hear your comments and suggestions so if you have any feedback on Ealing's Local Offer then complete the online form.
The Local Offer should:
- give information about education, health and family support services
- give information about leisure activities and support groups
- hold information in one place
- present information in a clear, comprehensive and accessible way
- make service provision more responsive to local needs and aspiration
- be developed and reviewed with service users and service providers
Who is the Local Offer for?
- Children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities (SEND) from 0-25 years
- Parents and carers
- Practitioners and professionals
The information will make it easier to find out what you need to know, help you ask the right questions and find the nearest and most suitable service.
The local offer is different because it's not a list or directory of services, instead it helps you make decisions about the resources needed, is transparent about the decision making, access and eligibility for services and it explains who is accountable and responsible for the decisions made.
