West Sussex Local Offer – an online information and events guide for children / young people (from birth to twenty-five) with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), their families and professionals

Closed 31 May 2017

Opened 17 Apr 2017


Parents, services, young people, partner agencies, professionals have actively participated in every stage of the development of our Local Offer by attending workshops and providing individual group feedback to the various pilot sites. 

This is another 'pilot'. The biggest development is the change to the 'information section on site'. We are expecting further changes to be implemented to within this period including accessiblility filters on the calendar of events. 

Why are we asking for your feedback?

We know that in order to deliver a great website it is important for us to work together. We have worked in co-production with parent carers who are members of the West Sussex Parent Carer Forum, service providers, professionals and young people. We want to ensure we continue to deliver a meaningful website for you. View our leaflet here.


We are trialling the use of this consultation in addition to other ways we continue to hear from you e.g. talking directly to some of you at workshops, events, emails and on social media (Facebook / Twitter). 

Who do we want to hear from?

We want to hear from as many of you as possible including if you are a young person, parent carer and/or professional working in schools, health and social care services so please do share this survey with your friends and colleagues.

If you have any questions, concerns or need any help completing this consultations then please do email Charlotte Smith, Local Offer Officer: localoffer@westsussex.gov.uk
