A coalition has formed of 29 of the UK's leading children's organisations to support disabled children, young people and their families, following recent research showing 69% of families don't get support from outside agencies.
The coalition will be fighting for better health and social care services to support those in need.
A number of our clients need support beyond education and all too often this is a real struggle for them. Hopefully this will provde a voice to these families.
Recent figures estimate that £3.2bn was cut from a range of children’s early social care and welfare services between 2010 and 2015, leaving service and provision severely lacking across the UK. The gap in health and social care services means that British families face enormous difficulties in accessing even the most basic support. The Disabled Children’s Partnership will launch a major new campaign in England in the summer of 2017 to tackle this challenge.
