About Kirklees Local Offer
The Kirklees Local Offer is for families of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities.
The Local Offer contains information about services relating to special educational needs, disabilities, education and more for children and young people aged 0-25.
It is part of the Children and Families Act which brought in a number of important changes about support and services.
If your child or young person has, or you believe may have, special educational needs and/or disabilities, please consider adding their details to the Kirklees additional needs register. This information will help tell us what we need to include in our Local Offer and help with planning services to meet local need.
Our local offer will continue to develop over the coming months with the support of PCAN (Parents of Children with Additional Needs) and young people, to cover:
Learning – from early years through schools, colleges to employment. Health – from GPs and health visitors to hospitals and specialist care. Social Care – from assessments for support, safeguarding, to respite and short breaks. Other services – such as leisure and after school activities. Self-help information about a range of conditions and related subjects. We value feedback and comments and would like you to get involved and help us get it right. If you have any suggestions for improvements or ideas about what might help you, please contact: LocalOffer@kirklees.gov.uk
