Every Disabled Child Matters campaign
Who we are
Every Disabled Child Matters (EDCM) is the
national campaign fighting for rights and justice for
It is a consortium campaign run by four national organisations
working with disabled children and their families - Contact a Family, the Council for Disabled
Children, Mencap and
the Special Educational
Consortium. Between them, the campaign partners represent
over 770,000 disabled children and young people in the UK.
EDCM was established in September 2006 and continues to campaign
to raise the political profile of disabled children and their
families within central and local government.
What we do
We work closely with the disabled children's sector and our
34,000 supporters to lobby Government to ensure
disabled children and their families have the services and support
they need to lead ordinary lives.
EDCM wants Westminster and local government to:
• Give disabled children and their families new
rights to the services and support they need.
• Invest in new resources to make sure these
rights can become a reality.
• Give disabled children and their families a new level of
priority, and work with them to improve the
services they receive.
