Rights and justice for disabled children

Just completed and signed the Every Disabled Child Matters pledge (see 1 to 5 below) and sent it off by email. I'm very happy to make this committment. It is one of the essential roles of any MP working for a fair and just society to do the work outlined in the pledge...
1. Meet with disabled children, young people and their families to discuss key issues of concern to them
2. Raise these issues of concern, and promote rights and resources, for disabled children, young people and families from my constituency in Parliament
3. Visit local services for disabled children and their families on a regular basis
4. Support measures to transform services for disabled children and their families, such as the Aiming High for Disabled Children (AHDC) programme in England
5. Find out how funding is being used in my constituency to improve services for disabled children, young people and their families

Candidates who've not signed up yet can find out more information and download a copy of the EDCM Constituency Pledge at www.edcm.org.uk/constituencypledgeppcs .
