The SEND Youth Advisors Surrey have rebranded! The group are now known as ATLAS. We will be updating our webpages soon. Find out more about how ATLAS grew out of SYAS on the ATLAS website.

ATLAS is one of the participation groups run by the User Voice and Participation (UVP) Team at Surrey County Council.

The UVP Team empowers children and young people, their parents, and carers to share their views and opinions about the services they use.

You can find out about some of the work we've done to bring about change in the way people talk about additional needs and disabilities.

We'd love to hear your experiences too! If you'd like to, you're welcome to email us at to tell us what's worked well for you, or what hasn't been so good.

"I spent so long in services that you start to just believe that they're the only ones that can be right"
