The Harrow Local Offer sets out the services and support available in our borough for children and young adults under the age of 25 with special educational needs and those who are disabled. It also provides information about a young person's transition into adulthood.
The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. Knowing what is available and how it is accessed gives more choice and control to families and young people.
The Local Offer has been developed in partnership with parents, carers, children and young people. We are continuing to develop the Local Offer to make our services easier to find and understand.
We are always trying to get the word out about Harrow's Local Offer. Please tell your friends and family about this website. You could also print out a flyer or a poster to pin up - download it here.

Harrow Council and the local parent forum, Harrow Parent Forum (HPF) have been working together to improve services for children and young people (up to the age of 25), with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities and their families.
