What our partners say about working with our SEND youth voice groups

Young People’s Participation in Decision Making (post 16 education ) event March 13th 2017, Chichester

‘Young people’s voice helped the group to give real examples of the young people we were talking about as well as examples of views.’

‘Further work is planned on developing the participation of young people in decision making. It is hoped that we will continue to include the voice of young people’.

We are looking at the way that colleagues include and prioritise the views for young people when decisions have to be made about their future.’

WSCC SEND Pathways to Adulthood Strategy 2016-17

‘The information provided by the young people was used to inform the final version of the Pathways to Adulthood Strategy and the actions in the High Level Plan for its implementation.’

‘…there is now a “voice” group that will maintain the high profile and planned collection and analysis of young people’s views associated with both initiatives ( Pathways to Adulthood and Lifepathways) (the group’s remit also includes parent carer views)’

‘…young people’s voice has and will continue to help make a difference to how young people with SEND will be enabled and supported to: live as independently as possible; make a positive contribution to the community they live in; take part in more learning, training or employment opportunities; access housing options that mean they can live safely and successfully on their own or with others and enjoy the best possible health and emotional well-being. As the implementation work progresses, we will be able to match up specific input from young people with what changes on the ground (i.e. “you said….we did”).’

‘Voice work will continue to be a top priority for all BAU and developmental work across SEND and the Authority’s and partners’ work with children and young people with SEND across the 0 – 25 age range and their families.’
