Welcome to the Luton Local Offer

Coronavirus: ‘Looking after Yourself, Looking after Your Children’

The Luton 'Local Offer' website helps you find information about local services, support and events for children and young people aged 0 to 25 years who have special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

Tell us your views

Following our SEND inspection and Written Statement of Action, it's really important that we can understand:

  • the views of children and young people and their parents and carers
  • what you think about the services provided
  • how you feel about the things that are important to you

This work is being led by SEND colleagues in the local authority, working with other partners who provide SEND services in Luton including health.

In order to gather this information we've developed four surveys:

We'll also be running focus groups with parents and using easy to read versions of the survey in schools. If you'd like to get involved but would prefer not to use the online survey form, please get in contact via email:

Luton Parent Carer Voice

Parent carer forums can help local authorities to engage with local families and understand the local needs so they can plan services for disabled children and their families effectively to meet these.

Free to join and use, the forums are open to parent carers, family members, guardians and foster parents of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities 0 to 25 (no diagnosis needed).
