ACE Committee self-advocates from Scotland recorded a video about their work: how they work together, what campaigns they do. The video was recorded to contribute to Hear our Voices self-advocacy conference.
Locking students away in a different room or restraining them otherwise - at school, this should only be used as a very last resort. The “In safe hands” campaign of our member Enable Scotland raises awareness about the overuse of these methods. Jordan McKenna, who works at Enable Scotland, told us more about the campaign.
This year Inclusion Europe wants to talk about education.
We think that inclusive education is better
for students, teachers and parents.
Our member Enable Scotland
wants all children to feel safe
when they go to school.
In many schools, children with disabilities
are kept away from the other children.
Enable Scotland started a campaign to stop this.
The campaign is called “In Safe Hands?”.
Jordan McKenna works at Enable Scotland.
We asked Jordan some questions.
