Bright Sparks

Bright Sparks supports young people to be involved in decision making in Halton. We help young people with disabilities to have a say in the services provided for them.



Our Bright Sparks Groups have helped with:-

    • - Changes to urgent health care
    • - Making the new Halton Transitions Booklet
    • - Improving the Cheshire Police Website
    • - A Sexual Health Consultation and
    • - The Quality of short breaks


We have developed strong links with schools and are delighted to see one of our members sitting on the Halton Youth Council.

 Thomas was really inspirational when he gave his speech at an event to help the young people of Halton understand the changes being made to the way those with special educational needs and Disabilities (SEND) will be supported to reach their potential.
