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.
