Disabled Children & Young

Peoples Participation Project

(b)

Enable disabled Children & Young People and their families  to identify disability issues

(c)

Enable a number of young people to feed issues back to Children’s Services Planning

Project Worker Rosemary Murray, worked with one hundred families to identify services they used, issues that affect service provision and recommendations they would make to have their needs met. Issues included;

Inadequate services and support at Transition from Childrens to Adult services

Not able to choose between special and mainstream schools

Unsuitable Domiciliary Care services

Inadequate Wheelchair Services i.e. Children with complex seating needs waiting up to two years for their wheelchair.

Lack of supported living accommodation

Lack of support to access mainstream activities resulting in social exclusion

Limited accessible transport

It was found that in the main service provision for disabled children did not fulfil article 23 of the UNCRC, Participants experience of service provision was that for the most part they were not able to exercise their right to enjoy the same life as other children and young people and they were not enabled to live as independently as possible.
