We are delighted that Sheffield City Council has decided to create a dedicated Local Offer post.
The Local Offer is a website with information about the support and services available in our local area for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities aged 0-25 years.
For several years, our forum has had a contract with the Council to update and improve the information on the Local Offer website. Whilst the content is now much better, we’ve not been able to improve the searchability and look and feel of the site as much as we would have liked, due to the limitations of the IT platform.
The new Local Offer worker will have a key role to play in the future development of the website. They will engage with children and young people with SEND and their parents to ensure the website meets their needs, lead on the promotion and marketing of the site, and act as the first port of call for enquiries.
