Disabled Children's Partnership (DCP) reaches out to MPs

The DCP is encouraging people to invite MPs to their launch event as only 1 in 10 parents say they believe health and social care meets their disabled child’s needs.

The DCP is a coalition of over 50 organisations campaigning for improved health and social care for disabled children, young people and their families. DCP says that health and social care for disabled children is in crisis. It states: “This is unacceptable, and MPs need to know. That's why we've put together a 5 step plan, setting out what the Government must do to change this, and address the growing crisis in health and social care for disabled children.” The DCP will launch the 5 step plan in Parliament on 29 November and it wants as many MPs to attend as possible. You can invite them to attend here. The 5 steps plan will be also put on the DCP website that day. Maia Thomas at the Disabled Children's Partnership said: “This launch event marks the next phase of the Secret Life of Us campaign: the push for real change. It shines a light on the challenges that families face and the change we want to see to help overcome them. “We need MPs to understand what the problem is, and what needs to change. Your MP represents you, so please email them and ask them to attend.” Find out more about the Disabled Children's Partnership.
