The Youth Justice SEND Project brings together Achievement for All (AfA), the Association of Youth Offending Team Managers (AYM) and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) to form a powerful partnership to transform outcomes for young people who offend, or are at risk of doing so, and who have special educational needs, through supporting professionals to bring about a culture and behaviour change around effective SEND joint working.
This project was developed to raise the aspirations of our pupils but it doesn’t tell the whole story about our collaborative approach to improving children’s lives. Over the past six years we have developed valued partnerships both within, and outside education; these show that collaboration is at the heart of everything we do.
