How does the service work?

KIDS East Riding YPEG (Young Person's Engagement Group) is made up of Young People aged 14-25 with Special Educational Needs and/or a disability (SEND) who meet up across Bridlington and the surrounding area within the East Riding of Yorkshire. The aim of the group is to make new friends, have fun, learn about what affects them and to tell others what they want: to have their voices heard!

The service will begin as virtual sessions via the on-line platform Microsoft Teams – a ‘How to use Teams’ guide is available on request.

The frequency of meetings and types of activities will be driven by consultation with the YPEG members: the aim is for this to be ‘their’ group.  

We plan to launch face to face YPEG sessions in and out of term-time at a venue in Bridlington in the near future, in-line with Covid-19 government guidance.  

Who is the service for?

Young People aged 14-25 with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) who live in Bridlington or the surrounding area within the East Riding of Yorkshire.  

How much does it cost?

Regular activities are free of charge.

Bespoke activities which fall outside of the regular funding may incur a cost to group members.
