What we do
CDC aims to make a difference to the lives of disabled children
and children with special educational needs. We do this by
influencing Government policy, working with local agencies
to translate policy into practice and producing guidance on
issues affecting the lives of disabled children.
We work with our members and networks to influence national policy.
Our practice work includes our work with local areas, disabled young people and parents.
CDC is working as Strategic Partner for SEN and Disability to the Department for Education.
Our work focuses on several key areas including education, health and social care.
We direct our work through our Council, networks and the Every Disabled Child Matters campaign.
Our SEC network works on policy that may affect disabled children and children with SEN.
