Hear Our Voices, Respect Our Choices

Our flagship conference in March was put together and presented by the Divergent Influencers and ARC Scotland’s Parent and Carer Network based on topics from Experiences of Young People with Additional Needs Leaving School, a consultation by the Divergent Influencers among young people across Scotland.

What people said…

This was a truly amazing event which gave young people the opportunity to be heard and to guide and shape the way for young people in the future. It can be hard enough to get it right for young people but when they have a disability it is so much tougher. They deserve the best we can give. This event goes a long way towards making that possible.”

This was a unique event that should set the example for how we listen and spotlight the voice of lived experience.”

Giving the spotlight to the Divergent Influencers and parents/carers was really important and unique.”

I think it was brilliant to see this conference event, very interesting, inspiring and informative … Looking forward to the next one!

Keep your voices loud, we’re listening!
