FLARE stands for Friendship, Learning, Achieve, Reach and Empower. It represents the views and voices of disabled young people and young people with SEND all over England. Being part of FLARE will mean participating in 6 meetings a year and feeding back to professionals. These meetings are held in-person in London, and we will support the young people with their travel arrangements.  

The deadline for applications is Friday 19 May at 5pm.
