Your feedback, and our responses, about the SEND Local Offer 2016
Every year, the local authority publishes feedback from users of our SEND Local Offer website. We also set out how we have addressed, or plan to address, the issues raised. All feedback we receive is used to make the website more helpful and easy to use.
The following comments reflect the feedback given by young people with SEND and their families during the year 2015-16.

Updated: We have launched a brand new Local Offer website, using feedback from families to shape the creation of this. Our vision for the new site is to present you with a Local Offer that is as clear, comprehensive and accessible as possible.
Your feedback will help us make the website clearer and easier for you to navigate.
Updated: You can now translate information in to alternative languages, using Google translate. We will monitor feedback with regards to how well this works.
"I would like to see details of who to complain to and the process" & "Emphasise the contact available to speak to (and when)"
All new services we add to the Local Offer will now be asked for more detailed contact information including: how to complain, who to complain to and when the contacts are available to speak to. We will also be updating existing information and adding this extra information as we obtain it.
"I would like the Local Offer to include information on courses offered by colleges - costs, contacts and course hours"
We are looking at the technical capabilities of our new website and how we can work with education providers to include more detailed information like this, directly on the Local Offer website.
This website provides contact details and information on further education and local colleges available to residents but we currently direct you to the college’s website, or encourage you to contact the colleges directly, for more in depth information.
