The latest meeting of Champions for Change was held on 23rd October, and it was a very positive experience!
This meeting was our first fully virtual session, and attendance almost tripled since the last meeting – with a total of five schools being represented.
We discussed the reasons why Champions for Change exists and the group’s importance in representing the voice of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities across Devon, making sure that the views and aspirations of children and young people are listened to, and that they help Devon in developing SEND provision in the future.
The next target for the group is to expand. As we talked about creating an advert, a new website and information flyers to help spread the word and gain new members. So if you or anyone you know is interested in joining a group run for young people with SEND by young people with SEND, please get in touch!
