The Local Offer is a way of giving information to families about services and support for children and young people with a special educational need and/or disability from birth to 25. It is a practical guide for parents/ carers and young people to help them to understand and access information and support.
To ask for a printed copy of the guide you can email us at infoFIS@barnsley.gov.uk or call us for free on 0800 0345 340.
The guide is just part of Barnsley’s Local Offer, information can also be accessed via the SEND Local Offer website http://fsd.barnsley.gov.uk
Or the Barnsley SEND Local Offer Facebook page where we share information about SEND events, services and groups. https://www.facebook.com/barnsleysendlocaloffer/
We also have a dedicated Family Involvement and Information Officer (Disabled Children and Young People) who can help you access the information and offer specific support, you can contact them free on 0800 0345 340 or email: infoFIS@barnsley.gov.uk.
The Local Offer is continually developing, and our aim is to ensure that families receive the right information at the right time and are able to make informed choices. The Local Offer information is updated and reviewed on a regular basis and this includes feedback from parent / carers and young people. We value all feedback and welcome any suggestions you may have on how we can improve our information.
However, if you are aware of any changes or would like to make any suggestions or if you do not have internet access and need help with obtaining information from the site then please call the Families Information Service free on 0800 0345 340.
