The local offer needs to be accessible to all families with a child / young person with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), not just to those with access to the internet.

In Suffolk professionals are encouraged to support families to use the local offer, please see the Independent Advice and Support page for more information.
Information regarding Suffolk’s Local Offer can be supplied in different formats by request. Please call our helpline on 0345 606 1490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also report accessibility issues through our feedback tool, this appears on the right side of every Local Offer page.
