Leisure and things to do
Youth Forum for young people with SEND
A new Youth Forum for local young people (16-25) with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) will be starting in January 25, 2021. The forum is a chance for young people to make new friends, to have fun together, and to share their views and wishes. It will also help young people understand and exercise their rights.
The first meeting will be on Google Meets (which includes closed captioning) on January 25, 2021 from 6-7pm. The forum aims to be inclusive as possible, but meetings will be online for the time being to be as “Covid Safe” as possible.
The forum is run by SIASS (Sutton Information, Advice, and Support Service), a service designed with Sutton young people in mind, so that they can have the best information, advice, and support in the most accessible way for young people with SEND.
Sutton library has a series of entertaining and accessible bitesize books written by the very best contemporary authors and aimed at emerging readers. There is also a dyslexia collection called "Read OK" of children’s and young adults books identifiable by their bright orange spine stickers. Each library has a labelled shelf, look for the "Read OK" and "Quick Reads" labels or ask the library staff.
