The next ACE meeting:
Thursday 6 December, 11am-12.30pm
ACE Christmas party
Venue: Royal Borough of Greenwich Town Hall
Board for young people with disabilities
ACE (Action, Change and Equality) groups enable children and young people within the Royal Borough of Greenwich to share their opinions on what is working and what could be better in the Borough. The feedback from the ACE groups helps to shape and improve services for disabled children and young people.
ACE groups are currently held in seven different schools and DSP’s within the Royal borough of Greenwich – consulting with a total of 40 young people on average each month. All the different schools have supported RBG in this venture with identifying students, accommodation and support staff who are involved directly in sessions.
The ACE groups have consulted on a wide range of topics including;
- Short Breaks – personal assistants
- The Local Offer
- The Royal Borough of Greenwich Culture Bid
- Speech and Language therapy
- RBG Participation Strategy
- Positive mental health
- Leisure services
Having a network of Participation groups enables RBG to have a wide representation of children and young people with SEND within the borough.
Sessions are flexible and interactive for the young people, so that all young people can contribute in a creative and open way that meet their individual communication and learning needs.
