CDC has supported a number of local authorities, groups of schools, health and social care providers and their commissioners at times of change. Our focus is primarily on inclusion and the organisation of services to support inclusion.

At CDC we always work in a way that includes the views of parents, carers, children and young people and brings them together with those of professionals to identify constructive and mutually agreed ways forward. Our particular strength is in facilitating the difficult discussions between parents, carers, children and young people and professionals. This is always a challenging but creative process; it brings together the insights, experience and ambitions of parents, children and young people with the experience and expertise of professionals.
