My Rights Your Responsibility Leaflets

Written by Council for Disabled ChildrenDate 30 Jan 2015

My Rights, Your Responsibility is a set of information written primarily for parents of disabled children. It provides information to parents on their child's rights to access activities, community facilities and other services.

We can now offer this information as free online training modules, which can be accessed here

Work your way through the modules at your own pace; if you leave the page, you can always start where you left off!

As well as the web based information within the modules, there is also a series of 6 printed leaflets. These can be downloaded from the links below.

The six basic leaflets are:

  1. Children's rights to communicate their views and be listened to
  2. Choosing a service for your child
  3. Expectations
  4. The Equality Act
  5. What is risk?
  6. What services need to know - a leaflet aimed at  service providers

Some earlier copies of the printed leaflets feature information on the Disability Discrimination Act rather than the Equality Act.

Hard copies of the leaflets are no longer available to order, but the PDFs are optimised for printing.
