Local Offer

We're waiting for Bill Turnball to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea,

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

Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

Dear Mr. Turnball

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REF: 2013-1275

 

I am responding to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000,
which we received on 23 December 2013, for information held by the
Council. You requested:

  

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

 

The current online system for providing information regarding services in
the borough is the Family Information Service Directory
([1]http://www.rbkc.gov.uk/educationandlearn....
However, this will need to be amended in order to reflect the requirements
of a specific Education, Health and Care Local Offer. Work is currently
underway to establish the full local offer for this area in Kensington and
Chelsea and we anticipate that, once compiled, a dedicated area of the
Council’s website will be used to publish the offer.

 

2. What is the name of the person who is leading on the Local Offer 
within your  Local Authority? Please also provide their job title.

 

Alison Farmer

Assistant Director for Special Educational Needs and Vulnerable Children.
