Calling 12-18 years olds!

The Council for Disabled Children (CDC) are looking for disabled young people and young people with special educational needs aged 12 – 18 years old to be part of their young people’s advisory group FLARE. 

FLARE stands for Friendship, Learning, Achieve, Reach and Empower. FLARE represents the views and voices of disabled young people and young people with SEN all over England. 

FLARE works together to share their views and experiences to help the Department for Education and other teams to understand how disabled children and those with SEN want to receive the support and services they need. Being part of FLARE will mean participating in 6 meetings a year and feeding back to professionals about how to make positive changes to improve things for all disabled young people and young people with SEN. These meetings are held in-person in London, and the DCD will support the young people with their travel arrangements.

The deadline for applications is Friday 19th May at 5pm.
