Bromley Local Offer information inclusion criteria
Local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have Special Educational Needs (SEN) or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans.
In setting out what they ‘expect to be available’, local authorities should include provision which they believe will actually be available.
The Local Offer should not simply be a directory of existing services. Its success depends as much upon full engagement with children, young people and their parents as on the information it contains. The process of developing the Local Offer will help local authorities and their health partners to improve provision.
The Local Offer must include provision in the local authority’s area. It must also include provision outside the local area that the local authority expects is likely to be used by children and young people with SEND for whom they are responsible and disabled children and young people. This could, for example, be provision in a further education college in a neighbouring area or support services for children and young people with particular types of SEND that are provided jointly by local authorities. It should include relevant regional and national specialist provision, such as provision for children and young people with low-incidence and more complex SEND.

Local organisations and advice services
Our directory of local organisations and advice services managed by the library service gives contact information for local organisations and includes brief details of regular meetings and activities.

Please note that inclusion in this directory does not constitute an endorsement of that service by Bromley Council.
Suggesting your event
There are many activities and organisations to choose from in the local community; however the council does not check them all. Therefore it is important that parents in particular make appropriate enquiries to ensure that these organisations are safe for their children. Responsible organisations welcome questions about their activities or events and the safety of their environment. All organisations should have a child protection policy, including guidelines on keeping children safe.
Some providers will be registered and inspected by external agencies, such as Ofsted or the Care Quality Commission. Anyone working with children and young people will be required to have appropriate Disclosure and Barring Service Check (the replacement for the Criminal Record Check), safeguarding policies and insurance in place, which they should make available to you on request.
