Shout Out Reps

Our Shout Out Reps speak for their school, college, friends and community.

They meet virtually once a month to share the views of young people with SEND in Buckinghamshire.

Any ideas our Shout Out Reps have for improving local SEND services are given to the people who make decisions at the council.

Shout Out for SEND is a way to have your say and make sure that:

  • local activities and services are suitable for young people with SEND
  • young people with SEND are being listened to by the council, and their school or college

If you want to share your views and experiences or get involved, email the Shout Out for SEND team or call Emily Dover on 07786 661 138.

SEND Young Inspectors

SEND Young Inspectors are young people who visit local activities and clubs that are suitable for people with SEND.

Our SEND Young Inspectors then tell us what they think about the club or activity.

Their views help clubs to make sure they meet the needs of young people with SEND.

The reports written by SEND Young Inspectors allow other people to find out what a club or activity is like before they go.

At the moment we are looking for SEND Young Inspectors aged 12 to 25.
