Tower Hamlets SEND Local Offer
Tower Hamlets Council commissioned focusgov to design and build "the best SEND Local Offer website" out there. The entire team is very proud of the end result, which was launched in the summer of 2021..
The website was designed with feedback and input from local parent partnership groups, which was invaluable - creating a site that worked for families from day one. It continues to be updated to reflect those users' needs and opinions, exactly as a website should be.
The site features a dedicated Young People's Zone, co-produced with teenagers in Tower Hamlets
