The Y is now a proud member of the Council for Disabled Children (CDC) in respect of the Flat 108 Enabling Independence Service. The CDC are the umbrella body for the disabled children’s sector bringing together professionals, practitioners and policy-makers since forming in 1974. It is a collection of more than 250 voluntary and community organisations representing various dimensions of the SEND sector.
The CDC exists to enable member organisations to support one another, share ideas and knowledge via meetings and CDC working groups and work collaboratively from policy into practice, to improve outcomes for children and young people. Over the years, members of CDC have been key in shaping the SEND landscape, most recently by contributing evidence in consultations for the SEND reforms. All members are committed to the CDC inclusion policy’s vision and work towards a society where disabled children and young people’s life chances are met and their aspirations supported.
This membership firmly underpins the differences our Flat 108 service aims to make with each young person including building self-esteem through making more of their own day to day decisions and identifying opportunities and building future aspirations.
