Youth Voice: Special Educational Needs and Disability (Bucks SEND Youth Forum)
If you are aged between 12 and 25, are disabled or have a specific need, then ‘Youth Voice: Special Educational Needs and Disability’ wants to hear from you.
This forum is a place where young people aged 12-25 have the opportunity to get their voice heard. The group discuss topics important to them. All responses are fed back to help improve the lives of those living with a disability or a specific need.
Find out further details on the Bucks Family Information Service website.
When do we meet?
