Advisory and young people's voice groups in Blackpool

These are some of the groups for young people and adults where they can be part of having a voice for young people with SEND in Blackpool. 

Co-production team, group members and volunteers for ages 15 plus

The co-production young people's group is for anyone with SEND aged between 15 and 25 years. There is also an adult SEND co-production group. The group meet on Tuesdays to work on different projects supporting those with SEND in Blackpool.

Empowerment forum

The Forum is for young people aged 13 to 25.

  • Do you want your voice to be heard?
  • Do you want to help us make decisions?

The young empowerment forums make positive changes to services in Blackpool for other people with SEND. The group meets twice a school term in one of our Blackpool schools.

We do all sorts of exciting work in our meetings, and out and about in the town. The YEF help hire staff for the council and the hospital, develop resources for children and young people, train professionals, and more!

If you would like to join our group, and/or are a professional keen to get some of your SEND children and young people involved, please contact the children’s engagement lead on the details below.
