Hello %FirstName%

Important Update on our 26th October Family Group & lots more...

Tell the Government What Matters to You...​

The Minister for Disabled People has asked the Disabled Children’s Partnership to help her gather the views of disabled children and young people. This is a really exciting opportunity to tell the Government what you think they should be prioritising when it comes to disabled children and young people.

They’ve developed a survey where you can tell them what you think the Government’s priority should be. They’ll then share your thoughts and views with the Minister for Disabled People. This is a great opportunity to get your views heard by the Government so please go ahead and take the survey! 


They particularly want to hear from disabled children and young people. We encourge you to complete the survey with your child or young person or on their behalf. Please do share the survey as well!
