Hi there! My name is Jacqueline Paterson and I am undertaking a research project with the University of Kent for my PhD about the impact of Covid and the lockdowns on young people with a disability or special educational need. I am keen to engage with young people with SEND between the ages of 14 and 25 to tell me about their experiences during the lockdowns and pandemic. I am keen to involve young people whose voice is not generally heard and for whom the pandemic may have had a significant impact. It is a good opportunity for young people to take part in a research project and make sure people know their views on what happened. This could be online (or in person if in the SE) and with or without a supporter of their choice. I used to be a teacher for many years and I now work as a young person’s advisor in a SEND information, advice and support service. I have had experience working with young people with SEND and I am fully DBS checked for this project. 

I have attached a flyer and an information sheet for you to see what it is I am doing.  Any questions, do not hesitate to contact me, and I hope to hear from you soon! Please contact me on or text or whats app 07734 002717
