The Wiltshire Local Offer describes the range of services and support for children and young people, aged 0-25, with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). The Local Offer information is made available by this website, the SEND Information Service (SENDIS) helpline (01225 764647) provided by Wiltshire Parent Carer Council (WPCC), weekly updates from WPCC, and a variety of publications, information and engagement sessions facilitated by WPCC throughout the year. In addition, individual services provide information about what they provided as part of the Local Offer.
This website contains a wide range of information including, for example, education, health, social care, preparing for adulthood and leisure.
Families are encouraged to get involved by sharing ideas, taking part in user groups and providing feedback. Your views are important – if you have ideas, comments or concerns about the Local Offer, please tell us using our feedback form. We will publish your comments, our responses and actions on our Local Offer Response page and all comments will be anonymous.
Are you accessing all the help available for the cost of childcare?
Childcare Choices is a Government website that can help you see what you may be entitled to. To try and make the childcare choices information a bit easier to read and understand, Wiltshire Parent Carer Council have produced some slides that explain the ins and outs of support with childcare costs that you may find helpful. Please click here to take a look.
