New participation group for young people

10th May 2024

  • SENDing Voices is a group for young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) aged 13 to 24 years in Sheffield.

    They meet fortnightly on Wednesdays at 4.30-6.30pm, at Electric Works opposite Sheffield Railway Station. Young people can also join in online.

    The purpose of the group is for members to talk about their experiences and share their ideas with decision-makers to help make SEND services better for everyone. It is a great opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills, boost your CV and join in with fun activities.

    The group is facilitated by youth workers who have had training in supporting young people with SEND, mental health issues and neurodiversity. They don’t have Makaton or BSL training. One-to-one support can be provided for short periods of time, but not on an ongoing basis.

    For more information or to discuss your young person’s needs, please contact Kerry by emailing or call 07391739118.
