Proud Supporters of ‘A Right not a Fight’

Hereward Proud supporters of the ‘A Right not a Fight campaign’

Hereward College are proud supporters of Natspec’s ‘A Right not a Fight’ campaign.

Natspec are campaigning to see the Children and Families Act working in the best interests of young people and ensuring that local authorities listen to their views and wishes – but so far the signs are not good. Too many young people are not told about all their options, and even if they are asked what they want, their views are frequently ignored.

Students and their families are frustrated and angry at the issues they have both, finding out about and then gaining funding for specialist college provision.

They want to be able to attend the college of their choice – one which best supports their needs and enables them to achieve their goals. A Right not a Fight is a student campaign set up by students from independent specialist colleges across the UK, to campaign for equality of access to specialist provision.

The campaign is supported by the Association of National Specialist Colleges (Natspec).

Natspec is the membership association for Specialist Colleges with 70 members and associate member colleges. Natspec believes that a place at a specialist college should always be an option that is available to young people and their parents.
