"We want a society in which disabled children's needs are met, aspirations supported and their rights respected"
Education is a fundamental human right. Success in education may look very different for different children, but we believe the progress and achievement of all children must be valued equally and celebrated.
All children have a right to high quality healthcare which meets their needs and supports them to live their lives to the full.
We believe that preparing disabled children and young people for adult life needs to start as early as possible in order to allow them to develop the skills and knowledge they will need to have choice and control over their lives..
Participation is the important process where individuals or groups can influence decision-making.
Children’s Social Care is about changing lives. It is about a wide workforce providing support and intervention at the right time, in the right way, with the right results.
Disabled children are children first. They are people with their own lives to lead and ambitions to achieve. Taking a whole child approach means arranging services around a child and their family, empowering them to achieve the outcomes that matter to them.
