Your Rights, Your Future Toolkit


Audience: healthcare professionals, children and young people, parents

‘Your Rights, Your Future’ is an interactive training session designed for any practitioner working with children and young people on the SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) reforms.

Developed by the CDC participation team, Making Ourselves Heard and in partnership with disabled young people, the training will help you to help children and young people understand the changes to SEND law and their right to be involved in decisions about their support. The training focuses on four key areas prioritised by young people:

  • Education, Health and Care Plans
  • Post-16 decision-making
  • the Local Offer
  • Personal Budgets

With the option to download or purchase these resources, there is scope to deliver these either as a one-day session or break it up into smaller sessions, with the guides and activities allowing children and young people to explore what they are entitled to by law through the reforms.

The resource can also be accessed through the website (link below), either by selecting the entire download or selecting a certain part of the course.
