Council For Disabled Children

We are the umbrella body for the disabled children's sector bringing together professionals, practitioners and policy-makers.

Our vision is a society in which disabled children and young people's rights are respected, their aspirations supported and life chances are assured.

We want disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs to have full and happy childhoods, to fulfil their potential, and be active within the community. And we want parents of disabled children to be parents first - living ordinary lives.

Who we are

The CDC has a membership of over 300 voluntary and community organisations and an active newtwork of practitioners spannig education, health and social care.

As a membership body we provide a collective voice that champions the rights of children, young people and their families and challenges barriers to inclusion.

As a collective we believe that the views of disabled children and young people are vital to the development of an inclusive society and that they have the right to be heard and actively participate in decisions that affect them.

We believe that every child and young person should enjoy the same rights and opportunities and that every aspect of society should be fully inclusive to disabled children and young people.
