One of The User Voice and Participation (UVP) Teams aim is to ensure children and young people who access Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) services have a voice in the services that affect them. One of the UVP Participation groups SYAS (SEND Youth Advisors Surrey) facilitate the annual YES! Awards.
The YES! Awards celebrate the achievements of young people with SEND, as well as giving young people the opportunity to nominate the professionals that have gone above and beyond to support them.
The YES! Awards aim to empower all young people who have made achievements despite their adversities and the User Voice and Participation Team and SYAS love the opportunity to celebrate these achievements.
