Dear Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

As part of the Government Green paper (Support and Aspiration) The government has outlined a new approach to special educational needs and disability. As part of this initiative the government requires all local authorities in England to set out a Local Offer.

The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available to them in their area and how to access them.

Please provide answers to the following questions

1. What is your local authority currently offering for online advice and guidance for Local Offer?

2. What is the name of the person who is leading on the Local Offer within your Local Authority?

Yours faithfully,

Bill Turnball

FOI, Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Mr. Turnball,

 

Further to your Freedom of Information Request which was received on 23^rd
December 2014, Rochdale Council is happy to provide the below response to
your queries:

 

1.  What is your local authority currently offering for online advice and
guidance for Local Offer?

This is available via the authority’s Family Service Directory:
www.rochdale.gov.uk/familyhelp.   Rochdale’s Family Services Directory is
an on-line directory incorporating Early Help, Childcare, and local
services to support families.

 

2. What is the name of the person who is leading on the Local Offer within
your  Local Authority?

As the Lead for Special Educational Needs & Children with Disabilities

to colleagues.
