FLARE is a national young people's advisory group which is formed of twelve 13-25 year-olds with SEND from around the country, to advise, challenge and support the government about how the SEND reforms would affect disabled children and young people directly.

Meet the FLARE members

FLARE members are passionate about ensuring disabled children and young people have an equal say in the policies and practices that affect them and their families. FLARE and other young people involved in regional groups within the programme play a key role in ensuring the voice and experiences of disabled children and young people are fully included in this work.

FLARE participants regularly write blogs on a variety of subjects.
