What does co-producing the Local Offer mean?

We work continually with children, young people, parents and carers to shape the support that exists for families.

As part of the Children and Families Act, we are required to produce our Local Offer in partnership with children, young people and their families. Our focus is on putting children and young people at the heart of planning and decision making, through co-production and a person-centred approach. Our aim is to engage young people and their families in all processes, particularly in relation to:
