The General Election will be held on 4 July. This will be your chance to vote for who you want to represent you in Parliament. 

We have been hearing from many of you, expressing your fears and also your hopes for whoever forms the next government. 

Three asks that will make a big difference 

Working with families, we have three main asks that will really make a difference. We are calling on the next government to: 

  • Reduce  waiting lists for children’s mental health and NHS community services, diagnosis and help at school and college. 
  • Revive  disabled children’s social care funding, law and the specialist workforce. 
  • Roll out  a much-needed increased package of financial support to tackle extra disability, care and energy costs. 

We know that these are big asks.  But disabled children deserve a government that is prepared to think big and to build a society where everyone is given their own best chance to be successful. 

Share our Roadmap for the next Government with your local parliamentary candidates.

10 successful steps

So, what would be a good start for the next Government towards making meaningful change for disabled children and their families?  

We’ve identified 10 SUCCESSFUL steps that would have an immediate impact.

These include scrapping the Carer’s Allowance earnings limit and introducing an energy social tariff. We also want to see the post 16 transport loophole closed and the savings of disabled young people unlocked. 

Many of these changes could be achieved in the first 100 days of the new Parliament.
