The local offer responds to concerns from parents and others that they find it hard to get information about what support is available and how to access it. The Government plans, through the Children and Families Bill, to require all local authorities to publish, in one place, information about provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have special educational needs (SEN) – a local offer.
The local offer must include information the council thinks will be useful for children and young people with SEN that they are responsible for. Information for provision both inside and outside of the local area must be provided, including relevant regional and national specialist provision.
As well as providing clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available, the local offer should make provision more responsive to local needs by directly involving children and young people with SEN, parents and carers, and service providers in its development and review.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has produced the first Short Breaks Services Statement. The document informs families what services are available, the eligibility criteria for these services, and how the range of services is designed to meet the needs of families with disabled children in their area.

Threshold of Need and Early Support for East Riding Disabled Children
Children and families may experience a range of needs at different times in their lives. All children, including children with additional needs, require access to high quality universal services. The council 'weighs up what is happening and what
action is needed in order to meet a child’s needs.
