Young People with SEND

Information Advice and Support Service needs young people to be involved!  

We are asking for a small group of young people who have special educational needs or a disability (SEND) to help us develop our service to ensure we are reaching out to young people with SEND in the community. The reason for this is so that young people become more engaged with the service and are better informed about their education, health and social care matters and the relevant law. Most of all we want to ensure they feel included and heard when decisions are being made.

The group will be fun and interactive but most of all will be steered by the young people attending. There will be the opportunity to meet new people and share your skills and ideas.

We are very excited about this project because we will be seeking young people's guidance and advice on our website, information resources and how we deal with enquiries and offer support. 

So, if you are a young person, have a son or daughter who you think would be interested, or you are a professional who is working with a young person who would like to help us, please give Lisa a call, to have an informal chat, or you can email. All the details are below, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Consultation on the Proposed All Age Travel Assistance Policy

The City of Wolverhampton Council wants to introduce a new policy to help more children and adults travel in an independent and safe way.

There is still time to have your say on the proposed All Age Travel Assistance policy, which covers travel assistance arrangements to facilitate attendance at educational establishments and social care venues and they would like to listen to your views.

The consultation ends 29 November 2019.
