Young People's Advisory Group on SEND reforms

EPIC stands for Equality, Participation, Influencing, Change. EPIC were a group of 16 disabled young people from across the country who were supported by the Council for Disabled Children to advise the Department for Education on changes to the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) system as part of the Children and Families Bill.

If you are a young disabled person who wants to have their say on these issues, or you work with disabled children and young people who do, then get in touch to find out how you can be involved.
