How people are involved in our work

We believe you should have the opportunity to be involved in decisions that affect you! These are just some of the ways people have been involved:

Play in at Parliament

To mark the launch of The Case for Play report, on Wednesday 24 February, Sense hosted a reception at the Houses of Parliament. The reception was a wonderful chance for attendees to hear the key findings and recommendations from the report, meet parents and families of children with multiple needs, and to see the power of play in action. Read about our Play in Parliament event.

Sense’s Public Policy team hosted an event for NHS England to meet with people who are deafblind; both to discuss previous experiences (positive and negative) of information formats and communication support provided by health and social care organisations and to give opportunity for people to suggest ideas for how things could be improved. Find out more and watch our video about the Accessible Information Standard.

Young campaigners

Six young people, all keen to share their experiences and express their views, took part in a Young Campaigners’ Weekend. Find out more about our Young Campaigners.
