What is the Local Offer?

Along with all schools, the Local Authority are required to provide information to parents on how to seek additional support beyond that which is ‘normally available’ for their child.

The local offer is an outline of the services available for children and young people in North Yorkshire.  The local offer details the services available to children and families from 0-25.  The main aim of the local offer is to enable families to see readily the support they can expect locally without having to struggle to find the information.
