Making Ourselves Heard News
Making Ourselves Heard response to Next Steps and
Making Ourselves Heard (MOH) particularly welcomes the
commitment in '
Next steps' to strengthen the voice of disabled children and
young people to influence the services that they use.
Disabled young people's participation was a significant gap in
Support and Aspiration launched last year. The CDC young
ambassadors amongst others emphasised that is was vital the
voices, wishes and aspirations of disabled children and young
people were better embedded into the reforms, so we are delighted
that the Minister made a commitment to maintaining a focus
on disabled young people's participation in her statement.
MOH also welcome the announcement of a Young people's Advisory
group to help shape reforms nationally; however we would like more
information on how this will translate to a local level,
specifically ensuring that all disabled young people have a voice
in their own assessment process, Education, Health and Care plans,
local offer and personal budgets.
