SEND Community Alliance is an independent and inclusive grassroots campaign group, made up of disabled children, young people, their families and allies. We welcome involvement from similar independent parent and young people's SEND groups and individuals who want to collaborate with and who are dedicated to the same aims as us: to work towards a fair and level playing field for children with special educational needs and disabilities.

That means giving them a real chance to reach their potential, whatever that might be. It means ensuring they can access the help they need in education, health services, care and support services, as well as equal opportunities to careers and employment when they become adults.

We will also, from time to time, work collaboratively with other voluntary organisations on common goals or, for example, during the upcoming general election. But we are, and always will be, independent, standing up for, and alongside, our children and young people. If you'd like to follow us on social media, we have established a Twitter profile: @SEND_CA and on Facebook

Collaborate with us

We have decided that we want to keep a small central structure of the three founding groups for now, but we are looking at form for charitable incorporation.

However, if you're an individual or a group or organisation, you can join us as members or affiliated organisations. Our membership structure is:

  1. Individuals
  2. Charity and non-profit allied organisations
  3. Commercial allied organisations

All are free but we'd appreciate a donation if you can manage it, especially from groups.
