What is the Local Offer?
The Local Offer is a description of all the services available to support disabled children and children with SEND and their families. This information sets out what is normally available in schools to help children with SEND as well as highlighting what support is available for families who need additional help to support children with more complex needs.
Wigan’s Local offer
Wigan’s Local Offer provides parents and carers with information about how to access services in the region and what they can expect from those services. With regard to education, it allows parents, carers and young people know how schools and colleges will support them.
You can access the Wigan SEND site and see details of their Local Offer at www.wigan.gov.uk/sendlocaloffer. Educational settings are also required to provide information, as described in the SEND code of Practice.
