The Barnsley SEND Local Offer Facebook Page launched in July 2018 and already has a good following of SEND parents, carers and professionals in Barnsley.
It sits alongside the Local Offer as an extra source of information where both national and local news, events, activities, groups and sometimes "just for fun" posts are shared. Plus much more!
We have a regular schedule of posts promoting our statuatory duty to provide FREE childcare for all Two Year Olds in reciept of Disability Living Allowance or who have an EHCP.We also regularly promote the NEW Register of Disabled Children and Young People.
We have created themes such as: Makaton Monday, The Great Reading Adventure - Book of the Week (on Tuesday's) and we share a NEW group/activity/event that has been added to the Local Offer on a Friday.
We welcome any feedback from parents and carers or young people with SEND about the page and any idea's moving forwards are also warmly welcomed. We recognise that social media is a great 24/7 easy tool to interact and engage with you and we try our best to respond to every comment (good or bad) and private message as soon as possible.
