#CountDisabledChildrenIn calls on local councils to invest in the services that disabled children and families deserve as they set their budgets for the next year

Research from the Disabled Children's Partnership (DCP) shows disabled children’s health and care is being underfunded by £2.1 billion. Families with disabled children are struggling to access basic services they are entitled to, like speech and language therapy, breaks from caring, and equipment like hoists and wheelchairs.

The pandemic has just made the situation worse, with nearly three in four disabled children seeing their progress managing their condition regress as vital services were further restricted.

We are asking parent carers, disabled young people, and anyone who is any ally and wants to stand up to social injustice to take our quick and easy online action to email their local council leader, ahead of when local councils set their budgets in Spring 2022.
