Change that leads to better lives

NDTI receives 76k from the national lottery to support young people with SEND with life after lockdown

Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, the National Development Team for Inclusion’s (NDTi’s) Time to Talk project offers 50 young people online strength-based support at home to counter social isolation, provide motivation and help them return to education or training.

Julie Pointer, NDTi’s Programme Lead for Children and Young People says she is expecting a big response to the call for referrals when launched next week as many children and young people with Special Educational Needs and or Disabilities (SEND) and their families have struggled without support during Covid-19.

“Thanks to the lottery players, this programme will offer that support directly to young people online at home, enabling them to develop their aspirations whilst feeling heard and help build their emotional resilience for whatever lies ahead. It will also help provide important information for families, carers and education providers on how to build on that support in the future.”

Anybody wanting further information on the referral process and next steps should visit the Time to Talk webpage. Significant demand is expected, support will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
