Student Support & Wellbeing

At B&FC we offer a comprehensive range of support services aimed at helping you reach your full potential.

Our experienced advisers do everything they can to make sure you succeed. Throughout your time here, they will support you to achieve your learning goals and develop the all-round skills needed to prepare for further study and employment.

What is the Local Offer?

It is a requirement of every local authority to publish information about their services for young people up to the age of 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), and also about services outside this area which they anticipate young people may need access to.

This is collectively known as the Local Offer.

They Local Offer is a way of letting families know what services are available locally and how they can access them. The Local Offer pulls together all the information about education, health, care, training, employment, independent living, leisure activities and support.

Visit the links to Local Offers below to make sure you don't miss out on any services and support that could be available to you.

Financial Support

Don't let worries about how you'll cope financially stop you fulfilling your career ambitions. There's plenty of help available, some of which you don't have to pay back.
