What is Cornwall’s Local Offer?

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer includes all the support that is available to children and young people in Cornwall (aged 0–25) with special educational needs and / or disabilities (SEND) and their families.

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer website has a page aimed at parents, carers and other individuals such as professionals. It also has a Youth Local Offer page that is aimed at young people, or parents/carers of young people, who are preparing for adulthood.

What is included in Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer?

  • Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer includes the services, support and advice requested by families as well as those listed in the SEND Code of Practice.
  • It includes universal, targeted and specialist provision related to education, employment, leisure, transport, money, health, social care, childcare and much more!
  • The majority of the support described is based in Cornwall but the Local Offer also includes links to provision that is available in other counties when such provision is not available in Cornwall.

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer is published by the Care and Support in Cornwall and can be found on their website.  If families do not have internet access at home, facilities are available for public use at local libraries or One Stop Shops. Alternatively the Family Information Services can be contacted on 0800 587 8191

Why does Cornwall have a SEND Local Offer?

We want to support children, young people and families with SEND. Every Local Authority must have a Local Offer which sets out, in one place, information about the expected education, health and social care provision available for children and young people who have SEND, including those who do not have statements or Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. (SEND Code of Practice, 2014, p.59)
