Inquiry launched into impact of Covid-19 on SEN young people

An inquiry has been launched into the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown has had on children and young people with SEND.

It is being led by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for SEND and will hear evidence, views and experiences from a range of professionals and experts, as well as young people themselves.

The inquiry will focus on the impact that Covid-19 has had upon young people’s mental health, social and emotional wellbeing, and learning outcomes.

The inquiry will also seek to establish “where the capacity and responsibility to address the impact of Covid-19 lies, whether this be with the government, the sector, parents and young people themselves or a combination of all of these”.

It will look to make recommendations to government on its role in mitigating and remedying the impact that Covid-19 has had.
