The Disabled Children’s Partnership

The Disabled Children’s Partnership (DCP) is an exciting new collaboration between 25 disability and children’s charities (listed below). As charities we have 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 to enhance their life chances. The partnership was founded in 2015 to build on the excellent work of the Every Disabled Child Matters campaign.

The partnership will work with disabled young people and their families to launch a major new campaign in England in 2017. The campaign will set out to challenge the political status quo and proactively raise the profile of the challenges that so many disabled children, young people and families face.

The concerns, experiences and stories of disabled children, young people and their families will be at the forefront of the campaign, and therefore need to shape its development. If you are a parent, family member or disabled young person and would like to receive updates as the campaign develops or you are interested in helping to shape it, please look out for further updates. There will be an opportunity to sign up shortly.

If you have any immediate queries, or you are an organisation that would like to support the campaign, please contact

They have a mailing list you can subscribe to here.
