SEN & Disability Local Offer

October 14th, 2014 / No Comments » / by adminsarah

The Local Offer is published as part of the SEND reforms under the Children and Families Act (2014).  The purpose of the Local Offer is to “offer” information in a single place, which can help you find and understand what services you and your family can expect from a range of local agencies including statutory entitlement.

The aim of The Local Offer is to support children and young people with SEN and disabilities to feel included within their communities and to be independent.  It can help them to make choices and decisions that may have a positive impact on their lives now and into the future.

The Local Offer is not a guarantee that a particular service will be available, but should be a useful guide to what you can expect to find in your area and how you can access that service. 

The Local Offer is available to view at http://www.glosfamiliesdirectory.org.uk/localoffer

National Community Inspiration Awards

National Community Inspiration Awards for Disabled Children, Young People and their Families- nomination form

Vote for the Mobiloo

October 7th, 2014 / No Comments » / by adminsarah

Gloucestershire’s new Mobiloo has been shortlisted for a Lloyds Community Fund Award, where we could receive a grant of up to £3,000 towards its running costs.  PLEASE would you vote for us? And we’d be really grateful if you would forward this message to others you know and encourage them to vote as well. You are allowed to vote once by text, once online, and once by twitter, so do please triple your vote if you can!


Here’s how you can vote:


  • Text ‘VOTE TMY’ to 61119 (standard rates)
  • Online at https://lly-cf.co.uk/TMY – Lloyds will then send you an email where you have to confirm your vote.


The Mobiloo is Gloucestershire’s new mobile toilet with electric hoist and changing table. This is a unique vehicle and will enable disabled people who need specialist facilities, especially those who need to lie down to be changed, to get out and about to events and activities from which they are too often excluded. It’s simply not fair that an already disadvantaged group of people cannot go places because of the absence of appropriate changing facilities. We’re starting to change this – please help us by voting.


Full details about the Mobiloo are at www.mobiloo.org.uk


Voting is open until this Friday 10th October. Please vote now before the message gets buried in your inbox! And please do help spread the word on your social networks and email lists and help us to make Gloucestershire fully accessible.


  • Thank you very much for your help with this. If you’d like more information about the Mobiloo and how to hire it – or how to become one of our volunteer drivers – please get in touch with us here at Active Impact or on mobilooglos@gmail.com. It is available on a self-drive hire or with driver provided to individuals, families, charities, schools, organisations and public events.
