SEND news

Transforming SEND services continued . . ."Better preparation for adulthood"

We want to improve access to independent living, employment and training opportunities for young people with SEND so that more young people are able to achieve their ambitions within their local community.

During the summer, nearly 150 parents, professionals and young people attended a series of focus groups helping us to establish our approach in this workstream and we’ll be consulting more widely during the autumn on our plans in this area.

How you can help!

We’re keen to hear a wide range of views to support the programme:  our services are for you and we need your help to make sure they do what you need them to do. One way we’re doing this is through our SEND online feedback group: we particularly want to hear from young people aged 16-25 with SEND and parents / carers of children who have SEND (it doesn't matter if they have a diagnosis or not). We send out regular activities and you can choose how many you want to take part in – you can do as little or as much as you want to. These tests are never a test of your abilities but they help us to make our services better.
