Dear Staffordshire 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?

Yours faithfully,

Barry Scott

Evans, Sophie (D,L&T), Staffordshire County Council

Dear Mr Scott,

 

Thank you for your request for information.

 

We have completed a search of our records and can confirm the following:

 

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

 

Staffordshire County Council is currently working towards implementing a
 comprehensive local offer that would be published online with additional
support offered to those who are unable to access the internet. The
government asked us to introduce the Local Offer by September 2014 and we
are currently working towards this deadline.

 

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

 

Local Offer Workstream is a part of a wider project aiming to implement
the reforms proposed in the Green Paper. The project has an established
governance structure with a project sponsor - Julie Forrest-Davies – who
is leading it forward.
