Dear Lancashire County 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,

Aaron Smith

Freedom of Information, Lancashire County Council

Dear Mr Smith

 

Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000

                                                                                                                                             
 

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

 

Lancashire County Council (LCC) does not currently have a Local Offer in
place.

 

Work is underway with IT colleagues in order to develop the IT platform
required to support the Local Offer.  There is an expectation that
information that already exists will be utilised within the Local Offer,
and work is ongoing to identify what information exists and how it can be
incorporated.

 

Work is also underway to support partners (schools, colleges, health,
voluntary sector and district councils) in order that they have their
individual local offers in place.

 

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.

 

The Local Offer is being developed as part of the LCC SEND Reforms
Project.  The lead officers are Brian Robinson (Service Manager, IDSS) and
 Alison Moore (Joint SEND Reforms Development Manager).

 

 I trust the above is useful.

 

Your request will now be closed as of this date.

 

Yours sincerely,

Miss P. Burman
