How to use the Local Offer

The Local Offer should have all the information you need included in it. You can find the information you need in several ways:

  • use the sections in the Local Offer - select the section you are interested in. You can view all the service records and the information and advice in that section and decide which is most useful to you.
  • use the search - keyword boxes. If you are looking for something specific then you can put the title or name or a word that relates to what you are looking for in the “keyword” box at the top of the page. When you select “search” a list of services that meet your keyword will be displayed. You can also add a postcode or location here to give you information that is close to that postcode.
  • use the filters - on the left hand side of the page there is a list of filters such as age, postcode or type of need. You can use these filters to narrow down your search results.

Records that are part of the Local Offer are identified by the SEND local offer symbol, which includes a star and hands, in the top right hand corner of the record. Service providers have been asked to be very clear in the information they provide so that you can see if they are relevant to you.
