There are about 9000 children and young people in Bristol with special educational needs or a disability (SEND).

Organisations across Bristol’s Children and Families Partnership are currently working together to help ensure these children and young people achieve the outcomes set out in the Children, Young People and Families Strategy.

Young people wishing to vote in next month’s general election have until midnight tonight to register.

Earlier this month, we called upon VCSE organisations working with young people and students to encourage their stakeholders to register to vote.

At Voscur we believe that voting is one of the most effective ways that citizens can exercise influence over the future of their country and community.

 

Bristol City Council is asking for your views on the support provided by the SEND Sensory Support Service and how it can be improved.

The Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People and WECIL are holding this event to share information about proposals for the redesign of the service. You will have the opportunity to give your views about how the service is run and how you think it can be improved.

There will be BSL interpreters and speech to text available.
