Future Me Gloucestershire is a youth voice participation platform and is part of Gloucestershire County Council.
Future Me exists to give 13 – 25-year-olds opportunities to share their views and feedback about growing up with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) in Gloucestershire. What’s going well and what could be better? Which services have been supportive, and where could support be improved, and how? Their voices are important to the Local Area, and we champion their feedback with local leaders.
There are many ways for young people to get involved and have their say. Future Me works with SENDCos and teaching staff to arrange focus groups with cohorts of learners at mainstream and Special Shcools, and at FE colleges. These focus groups can be highly complementary of PHSE topics and of preparation for young people’s Annual Reviews, whether they have an EHCP or a My Plan/My Plan Plus. Sessions can be tailored to suit need and group size. Young people can also send us feedback directly if they wish to.

Future Me has a home on the Glosfamilies Directory. Driven by our team of Youth Representatives, Future Me are developing the ‘Young People’s Local Offer’, a resource by and for young people about Preparing for Adulthood in Gloucestershire. Information is checked by young people, and covers topics including, My Employment and Training, My Money, My Health and Wellbeing and My Travel and Transport.
