Following our lovely write up from Gaby, one of our SEND Young Person's Champions, we are now bringing you Alice’s view of the day! ?

We really enjoyed the Inclusion Summit and both Young Person's Champions had never been to a conference before, so it was a fantastic experience for us all to help get our voices heard.  

 On the 20th October I went to an inclusion summit at Haynes Motor Museum.  

 When I arrived, I went into a big hall where there were lots of people. I sat at a table with Gaby, Sian and Gemma.  

 We had to listen to lots of people speaking about inclusion. We had lots of short breaks, so we could keep refilled. We also had break out rooms. Which is where we got to discuss more about different kinds of inclusion and what inclusion meant to me. We were meeting for the first time that day - so was interesting to hear their views.  

 At lunch they had stalls advertising some of the organisations that were there that day such as Local Offer and SENDIAS.  

 The best bits of the day were: 

  • Listening to all the interesting presentations, 
  • Talking to new people, 
  • Feeling like I could have my voice heard and the fact that the organisers put all the information on cream paper and in font size 18. This helped me to be able to read all the information that was given out that day.
