I'm filling in this form, I urge everyone with a story to tell to do the same, raise awareness and end some of the crap our kids have to deal with!!!
Every Disabled Child Matters (EDCM) is a three year campaign to get rights and justice for disabled children and their families. We want to raise awareness about:
1) the fact that lots of families with disabled children are still not getting the right support they need to lead ordinary lives
2) some of the specific issues facing families at the moment
3) how those issues can be overcome if the right support is available
Having examples of all these things in the media – with real stories from real families – is a very powerful way to put pressure on government to make change happen and improve the situation for disabled children and their families.
