The Council for Disabled Children are looking for disabled young people and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 12-15 years old to be part of our young people’s advisory group, FLARE.
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we cannot meet up as group as usual for the time being. However, we are looking for new members now and then will be resuming our face to face meetings soon!
FLARE stands for Friendship, Learning, Achieve, Reach and Empower. It’s really important that disabled children and young people and those with SEN to be involved in the decisions that affect their lives. FLARE work together to share their views and experiences with the Department for Education and other organisations to help them understand how children and young people want to receive support and what services they need.
FLARE meet 6 times a year and you will need to be able to travel to London to share your experiences, give feedback and advice, and also talk to professionals about how to make positive changes to improved things for disabled young people.
Please download the application form which has more information on it and explains how to apply.
We accept video applications or you can call us to arrange a time to talk to us.
Please email all your applications to Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Sunday November 1st 2020.
