CDC works to make sure all disabled children and children with special educational needs have access to the right healthcare for them. We think it is important that disabled children are able to access treatment in the setting of their choice and that it is delivered by professionals who take account of their views. To support this vision of a health system that works for disabled children CDC works in a number of ways
CDC draw's on the views of our members to influence national policy, working with the Government, Members of Parliament, the Department of Health and other relevant partners on changes in policy, legislation, regulations and guidance that affect disabled children.
CDC applies its knowledge and expertise to help deliver a number of health projects that aim to improve knowledge and practice in disabled children's health. We work with a wide range of institutions and professionals working to improve disabled children's health
CDC produces expert resources to support health professionals and parents and families of disabled children get access to the information they need. These include guides, toolkits and other resources that cover a range of issues that affect the health of disabled children and young people.
