The Disabled Children’s Partnership (DCP) is an exciting new collaboration between disability and children’s charities 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

The partnership will work with disabled young people and their families to launch a major new campaign in England in 2017. The campaign will aim to change the way the government does things now, and raise awareness about the challenges that many disabled children, young people and families face.

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.
