What is the Local Offer?
The S.E.N.D Local Offer offers information for parents, in a single place, which helps them to understand what services they and their family can expect from a range of agencies in Bury and beyond.
In this section, you will find information about national and local services and organisations which can offer support to Bury families. There are also details of clubs, groups and activities especially for children and young people with disabilities and special educational needs (SEN).
With developments in planning, training and experience over the years there are now many more ‘mainstream’ clubs and activities which are accessible to disabled children and young people too. Take a look in the Leisure & Recreation category within the Children & Families section to find out more about local groups in your area, or check out the Sports category for details of different sporting activities.
We always recommend that you contact services/organisations directly to discuss your child’s needs and ensure that they can be met.
Financial Support and Personal Budgets
We have developed minimum standards for Payroll and Managed Account services which providers are asked to sign up to and comply with to ensure that people who have Direct Payments can expect good quality services from these companies. The current list can be found by clicking on the 'Financial Support and Personal Budgets' attachment in the downloads section on this page. Further details on these companies can be found in the services section. The list will be updated as new providers apply to be added to the list.
