Three ‘Pillars’ to deliver better support and care for disabled children and their families

Thursday 26th September 2019


To make a real difference to lives of disabled children, the Government must make them a priority, including by appointing a Minister for Disabled Children; by clarifying and reviewing the rights and responsibilities within the system; and by ensuring there is sufficient funding for services for disabled children and their families.

These are the demands of the Disabled Children's Partnership (DCP), the campaign group chaired by our CEO Amanda Batten. The DCP have identified three pillars to underpin and ensure improved support for disabled children and their families.

Steven Kingdom, DCP Campaign Manager, has written a blog setting out the way to build better support for children and families, and you can read it on our website now.
