Coventry AmbasSENDors

The AmbasSENDors logo

The term "AmbasSENDors" is used to describe children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, who are involved in shaping support, either for themselves or for others in the city. It's all about representing the thoughts of children and young people, enabling organisations to use those ideas and experiences to make services better for all. 

To become an "AmbasSENDor" you can be involved in:

  • talking about your experiences with others
  • contributing to discussions with decision-makers e.g. at school, with health providers, commissioners
  • contributing to national consultations on subjects around support for young people e.g. Government departments, the children's commissioner, Council for Disabled Children

The best thing about being an AmbasSENDor, is you can do as little or as much as you like, to get involved. You might have a great story to tell about something you've done or achieved which you want to share. You might want to set up a SEND group at school for other children/young people to get together. Whatever it is, big or small, we'd love to hear about it and share it with others.

We also have two ready-made groups that already get together to share their experiences and views:

You can find out about them and their activities in the following pages.

If you have something you'd like to share with us - and maybe get an AmbasSENDors badge in the process - then you can send us your ideas by email to
