Description

Service Description

At the Council for Disabled Children we work with our members and networks to influence national policy. We engage with decision makers including local and national government to help shape policy development. As well as this we respond to government consultations and calls for evidence, provide parliamentary briefings and conduct policy analysis.

As Strategic Reform Partner to the Department for Education we contribute to the development and implementation of key policy initiatives, such as the Children and Families Bill.

We also channel much of our legislative work on education through the Special Educational Consortium (SEC), who work with government when there are proposals for changes in education policy that may affect disabled children.

Below is a selection of key policy developments impacting on disabled children and their families.
