The #CountDisabledChildrenIn campaign is now closed. In Spring 2022, over 1,100 people stood up for disabled children in their local area, and asked their local council’s to #CountDisabledChildrenIn. We can’t thank everyone that took part enough.
As featured in The Sun, the Disabled Children’s Partnership’s (DCP) #CountDisabledChildrenIn campaign called on councillors in England to include disabled children in their budget plans. The campaign called on councillors to invest in the social care services that disabled children and families have a right to in order to live a good quality of life, and right years of injustice.
As part of the campaign, we put together analysis on the main problems in disabled children’s services for each local authority area in England. You can still download a copy of this analysis here.
We also put together a briefing for councillors on the campaign, which you can still download here.
