What is the SEND Local Offer?

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer describes the provision that is available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families.

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer helps families by gathering in one place, the information that they need to know in order to make informed choices about the support they receive.

The SEND Local Offer section of the Care and Support in Cornwall website is also a good resource for the professionals working with children and young people with SEND.

It has been co-produced with parents/carers and young people with SEND. They chose the Care and Support in Cornwall website as the host for the SEND Local Offer. 

What is the Local Offer flash?

Many services/organisations included in this website focus on meeting the needs of children and young people with SEND. These services are automatically part of our SEND Local Offer and are awarded the SEND Local Offer flash (an orange circle with LO inside it).

Other services/organisations are for everyone. If these services/organisations are able to describe how they include children and young people with SEND they are also awarded the SEND Local Offer flash. In order to do this they have to complete the SEND Local Offer questions on the registration form.
