Making participation work: Young People’s conference

Date: 17 Apr 2019
Time: All Day

Location: Coin Street Conference Centre, London on Wednesday 17th April 2019

For: Children and young people below the age of 25 with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities.

The Making Participation Work programme, funded by the Department for Education and jointly delivered by the Council for Disabled Children and KIDS, is holding its second children and young people’s conference!

This conference is for children and young people below the age of 25 with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. It will bring together individuals and participation groups from around England to learn about why having a voice matters, discuss their experiences of participation, and inspire each other to get involved in decision-making.

The day is being planned with the help of young people, and a range of fun, accessible workshops will be held by different disabled children and young people’s organisations. Each young person will be able to choose their activities in advance, depending on their own interests and experience.

Places will be awarded by ballot. In order to make the day as accessible as possible, a limited number of travel bursaries will be available.
