Welcome to the Bromley Local Offer

Find out more about why, how & when we built this website

 

What is the Bromley Local Offer?

The Bromley Local Offer is the range of services and provision available to children and young people up to age 25 with special educational needs & disabilities (SEND), and their families.

 

What is the purpose of the Bromley Local Offer?

The purpose of the Bromley Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in Bromley and how to access them. The offer includes provision from birth to age 25, across education, health and social care, and has been developed in conjunction with children and young people, parents and carers, and local services, including schools, colleges, health and social care agencies.

The main purposes are:

  • To provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the available provision and how to access it
  • To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review
  • To be a useful resource for professionals in understanding the range of local services available when working with families
  • To improve outcomes for our children, young people and families

The Bromley Local Offer is not simply a directory of existing services. Its success will depend as much upon full engagement with children, young people and their parents as to the information it contains. The process of developing the Local Offer is helping the services in Bromley to improve their provision.

 

How we created the Bromley Local Offer

The Bromley Local Offer has been in development since September 2013. This work has been driven by a number of different organisations and groups, with the voice of parents and carers, and young people themselves, right at the heart of discussions.

Both Bromley Parent Voice [external website] and Bromley XbyX [external website] have been involved in the development of this website. In addition, a range of other groups of parents and carers, and young people, have given their feedback, comments and views which have continually been incorporated in to the website.

For example, during the summer of 2015, the website was restructured around five core age bands following feedback from parents and carers. During late 2015 and early 2016, feedback showed that this structure did not work, therefore the whole section has been rebuilt in early 2016 around nine core needs. This new approach went live on 4 April 2016.

During 2017 we have worked as part of the 'Local Offer Workstream' to co-review and co-produce the website with parents and carers, and professionals. See what we have changed.

During 2017 we have also worked with young people and young adults to co-produce our new 'Young Adults' section. Read our Preparing for Adulthood Co-Production Report

 

How can you get involved with the development of the Local Offer?

We want young people and families to be fully involved in the development of the Local Offer. As well as giving feedback by email, we intend to set up a number of on-going consultation forums so that young people and families can be at the heart of the decision making process for new and revised services and the ways in which the Local Offer is published.

You can also join our Local Offer Online Research Panel which we are launching in September 2017. Find out more and sign up.

 

How can you give us your comments and feedback?

You can contact us at mylife@bromley.gov.uk.

We publish feedback as we receive it, but in a way that does not allow individuals to be identified. We show what we have done, or what we are going to do in response to the comments and feedback, so that you can see what changes we are making from what you have told us. We also tell you when we haven't changed something.
