Welcome to the Barking and Dagenham Local Offer
For children and young people who have SEN or are disabled
Our local offer is more than simply a directory of services. It’s the outcome of partnership working with our local community.
We have a duty under the Children and Families Act to set out in one place information about provision across education, health and social care for children and young people who have SEN or are disabled – including support for their families.
This is our ‘Local Offer’.
The purpose is to:
- Provide clear information
- Make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving children, their parents and young people as well as service providers in its development and review
This new way of working – co-production – with children, young people and their families has brought a fresh and innovative approach. We’ve formed closer partnerships for shaping services and setting priorities at a time when there is less money in the system.
By working together we can ensure that we develop provision which is responsive to local needs and leads to the best outcomes for all of our children and young people.
This local offer is just the start of our journey.
All providers are required to follow the SEN Code of Practice Click here for more information.
