Youth Forum for young people with SEND

A new Youth Forum for local young people (16-25) with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) will be starting on 25 January 2021. The forum is an opportunity for young people to make new friends, to have fun together, and to share their views and wishes to help them understand and exercise their rights.

The first meeting will be on Google Meets (which includes closed captioning) on 25 January 2021 from 6 -7pm. The forum aims to be inclusive as possible, but meetings will be online for the time being to be as “Covid Safe” as possible.

If you know a young person who would like to join the SIASS Youth Forum, please email laura.haupt@siass.co.uk or text 07432 663262 to receive the meeting link.

The forum is run by SIASS (Sutton Information, Advice, and Support Service), a service designed with Sutton young people in mind, so that they can have the best information, advice, and support in the most accessible way for young people with SEND.
