Would you like to get involved in changing services for disabled young people?
There are groups of disabled young people coming together to talk about their experiences of using services. This is called the SEND Young Person's Network - SEND means special educational needs and disabilities.
When they meet up and get to know each other, they also talk about what could be changed and made better. So if this sounds interesting and you would like the chance to give your feedback, take a look at our SEND Young Person's Network page and find how to get involved.
