We are proud to be a member of the Disabled Children’s Partnership (DCP). The DCP is an exciting collaboration between disability and children’s charities and organisations across the UK. We’ve come together in the shared belief that health and social care services can and must be better if disabled children, young people and families are to get the support they need. The partnership was founded in 2015 to build on the excellent work of the Every Disabled Child Matters campaign. 

What we do

We have launched an exciting new campaign, the Secret Life of Us. We know that 43% of the British public don’t know anyone who is disabled, and that 97% of parents with a disabled child do not believe the public understands the challenges they face every day. Developed in close partnership with parents, the Secret Life of Us aims to change this, by revealing the realities of the challenges that disabled children, young people and their families face on a daily basis.

Sign up to support our campaign here, and don’t forget to like the DCP Facebook page and follow on Twitter.

We want to hear from you

We’ll share the experiences and stories of disabled children, young people and their families throughout the campaign, and these experiences will also help us shape it. Look out for further updates as the campaign progresses as your opinions as parent/carers will help to develop it.

If you would like to hear more about the campaign, or if you are interested in getting involved, please sign up to the campaign mailing list.
