We are ‘Youth Ascends’ Plymouth’s SEND (Special Education Needs and Disabilities) youth forum.
A. A forum is a method of sharing ideas and talking about an issue or problem.
Our forum is open to young people with SEND from age 9 – 25 years old. In the near future we hope that we will be including health issues affecting service users. Our forum encourages young people to engage in discussions and feed experiences and views to our young person’s steering group.
A. A steering group is a group of people who run the forum, represent the voice of the forum and engage with professionals in strategic planning.
Our steering group is made up of children and young people aged between 9 and 25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). This acts to make sure young people’s views are taken into account within strategic planning for provision in Plymouth. The group discusses issues that affect them and other children and young people with SEND in Plymouth. They advise from their own experiences and have a passion to make sure that young service users opinions are valued, their views heard equally with other members of society and by professionals in the city.
Young people can engage with the forum through their educational / post 16 providers / youth groups or agencies by attending facilitated discussion groups, drop ins, school council meetings or by surveys, email and text communication.
For further information of how you can be involved please contact Youth Ascends on 01752 258933 or email: YPForum@plymouth.gov.uk
