Apply to join SCA if you support our campaign to #fixSEND and you want to help us lobby for a better, well-funded SEND system that truly helps children and young people with SEND reach their potential. There is no charge to join, but if you can, a donation is appreciated to help us do this work.
For commercial companies who wish to join as allies, we would very much appreciate a donation of £50 or more. Donations are currently processed by Special Needs Jungle while we set up our own systems.
We have several levels of membership:
- Parent-Led Group - needs to be approved
- SEND Young Person-led Group- needs to be approved
- Charity Affiliate - needs to be approved
- Individual - automatic ally membership
- Commercial Company Ally - must be approved
Within the Individual level, you can register as a parent/carer, a young person with SEND under 25, a disabled adult over 25, or a SEND-related professional. You indicate this when you register.
SEND Community Alliance has already made a national splash. We are members of the SEND sector’s Special Education Consortium and we want to be able to represent as many parents as possible. We know that many parents have set up their own local groups, but want a louder voice and by joining SCA as an individual or a group ally, you can do this.
By joining us, we can collate all local information in a central location and use it to highlight nationally where things are going wrong (or right). We can pass this back to you as well as news about developments in SEND. We can use the knowledge we have already gained about lobbying and share it with you, locally. We can provide somewhere for you to take your information and put it together to make a bigger picture.
Please only join if you support our aims. We reserve the right to decline membership.
