Bradford’s Local Offer information sheet
Why is it important for parent/carers and children, young people with special educational needs/disabilities and service providers to leave feedback and what happens to feedback received?
What is the Local Offer?
The Local Offer is a new way of giving children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their parents or carers information about what activities and support is available in the area where you live.
