Dear Brighton and Hove City 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? Please also provide their job title.

Yours faithfully,

Jeremy Bartlett

Brighton and Hove City Council

Regarding your request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000: Ref: FOI:2550/2013

Please find set out below the information in response to the above
request:

1. What is your local authority currently offering for online advice and
guidance for Local Offer? All LA schools (with the exception of one
primary & one free school) have completed the SE7 surveys which describe
their school local offer. Some post 16 provisions and LA support services
and B&H voluntary services have also completed the surveys. Our Local
Offer is ready to go 'live' and we expect it to be freely available by the
end of the month (January). Other services will be encouraged and
persuaded to complete and add their local offer entry to the website. Our
Local Offer should be fully searchable and should be able to collect
comments and feedback which will inform future development of the LO. 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. Hass Yilmaz
Acting Head of SEN & Principal Educational Psychologist
