Education Advocate training

Date: Friday 23 Feb - Saturday 24 Feb
Location: Burleigh Court, Loughborough

If you have a spinal cord injury and want to support children and young people to be fully included in their education, you should volunteer as an education advocate.

Our passionate team ensure every young person can thrive during their education, socialise with their friends, and fulfill their true potential.

Being an education advocate involves:

  • Visiting children and young people at hospital, school or university (in-person or virtually)
  • Delivering presentations and workshops to students and staff to raise awareness and understanding of spinal cord injury
  • Promoting the voice of the child or young person
  • Working as a collective team with other professionals and organisations, supporting the child/young person’s individual needs
