Local Offer in your area

Local OfferWith the introduction of the Children and Families Act, every Local Authority has to provide a Local Offer for families and this MUST be published from 1 September, 2014.

We have compiled a list of all the Local Offers we could find (or the holding pages on the LA website).  If you live or work in one of those authorities with either a holding page or no link, then please help us out by sharing a link, we would be really grateful.

Don’t forget to let us know if you were engaged in the consultation of the Local Offer in your area.

Updated 13 October 2014

Red = cannot find a Local Offer.  This doesn’t mean it’s not there but as a parent searching, we cannot find it.

    Good to see you doing this but just being able to find the Local Offer for each LA is only part of the story what really matters is the quality of the content and how it is used to improve what is available.
    Hopefully in few months when all are green there will be time to assess the content ie is it all there and any good.
