Southend's Children and Families Information PointSHIP Adults

A Young People Led Training Event was held on the 27th October 2017 in Southend.  The aim of this training was to kick start our Participation Journey.

KIDS Org. are a national charity, founded over 47 years ago, they provide a wide range of support services to disabled children, young people and their families.

This was a successful event attended by members of the Special Educational Needs Team, Health, Social Care and Southend Family Voice. The training was bespoke to meet Southend's needs and was written and delivered confidently by 4 young people.  They covered a range of areas such as: 

  • Supporting us in identifying our participation priorities
  • Helping us to develop a participation strategy
  • Advising us on how to improve engagement with disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs
  • They shared examples of good practice in participation and provided us with quality resources and tools that we can use in our work with young people
  • Our Local Offer was reviewed by the group before the training day and feedback was given on the day which will be reflected within our Local Offer

There were several activities throughout the day, photo's below:
