What is the Collective?

The participation collective brings together young people and participation groups supporting those with SEND to have a voice.

We share opportunities to have a say on national topics that impact young people. We can offer support to develop young people’s understanding of participation and co-production.

The Collective is supported by the Making Participation Work project, funded by the Department for Education.

The Collective Get together

Every year, we bring together young people involved in participation across the country, to celebrate their contributions and to get them having a say on national topics.

Representatives from Department for Education come along too, to gather young people’s thoughts and opinions, and use these to make positive change!

This year, we met with young people in 3 locations – London, Nottingham and Online.  They got to have a say on national topics – find out more about what we got up to…..
