Making Opportunities Inclusive

Your service may be helping children and young people, but is it also fully accessible and inclusive?

The Council for Disabled Children is a leading authority on the rights and needs of disabled children. We work with government, local authorities and voluntary sector organisations to ensure disabled children’s life chances are assured, their needs met, their aspirations supported and their rights respected.

This training explores:

  • Your legal duties, including reasonable adjustments and recent reforms to legislation

  • Ensuring policies and procedures take into account the needs of disabled children and young people
