Local Offer and Links
The Children and Families Bill became enacted in 2014. As such local authorities are required to publish and keep under review information about services available for children and young people with special educational needs aged 0-25.

This is known in the bill as ‘the local offer’. Novio will signpost providers, children and their families to sources of further information. Novio's own 'Local Offer' is provided below!

West Sussex County Council

Through the help of our community, the Novio team have been collating various documents and website links regarding local offers and various support websites. You are welcome to contact Novio and inform us of any website links you believe will be of use to others concerned with SEND issues. If you are running a training course, special event or open day for professionals, parents and carers please feel free to let us know about it.

You can see various categories displayed on the left hand side of this webpage. For example, the locality schools list will take you through to the home page of a paritcular website you choose to view. It is the responsibility of the locality schools to provide their local offer and you must contact the school in question if their local offer is not provided.
