Nominee Profile

Location: London
SEND Reform England is a not-for-profit, parent led campaign group, working to reform attitudes and break down the barriers within education that many children and young people with send face.

Formed in May 2023, SEND Reform England have held 14 protests, handed a petition to Downing Street with 60,000 signatures, held a very successful parliamentary drop in and in December 2023 had a no 1 best selling book within 14 categories on Amazon including family health, child care and living with disabilities biography. We continue to go from strength to strength working with MPs like Clive Lewis, Rosie Duffield, Robert Buckland and Zarah Sultana to reform not only the education for children with disabilities but the attitudes towards disabilities in society. We are currently involved in a project with “Disabled Children’s Partnership” and campaign group “Let us learn too” which premiered on Good Morning Britain on 4 March. This short video campaign called “We can learn” sends a message to the government that our children want to learn and having the right education support they will learn and thrive.

SEND Reform England have created a community for parents and children lost and alone fighting a broken system and given them a voice and community. SEND has long been a marginalised and forgotten group that we have helped find their voice within the mainstream media and society as a whole.
