Children's Society Survey: The Local Offer

Posted by
|

The Children’s Society is consulting with young people and children with disabilities on how they can best use the new upcoming Local Offer website. The Royal Borough of Greenwich has commissioned them to find out which services on the site they feel are the most important. The survey also looks at what other websites people use and what features are helpful.

We encourage parents and carers to complete the survey with, or on behalf, of their child or young person with special needs and disabilities, or to assist their young person in completing the survey.

We will collate findings, pass them onto the Royal Borough of Greenwich and report back via Greenwich Parent Voice how the Survey results have impacted the Local Offer.

    Hello
    I have a son age 14 with special educational needs and at secondary school.With the new EHC plan it has emerged that he needs more support.
    It is suggested that he needs to be in a smaller unit .
    Does any one know of any smaller uni/school in the Greenwich Borough.
    Also can you enlighten me on What does local offer means and entail and what services are out there for childreen aged 14-16.

    Hi Christina! To find out more about schools with DSPs in the Borough there’s a great booklet online you can look at, towards the end if gives details on the range of DSPs.

    The ‘Local Offer’ is a new term to describe the complete summary of information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. It is hoped that knowing what is out there gives parents more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for their child.
