Report from Viper project on child disability

This report is the result of a three-year long project on disability in children and young people.

Sixteen young disabled researchers examined disabled children and young people’s participation and involvement in decision-making and the barriers that prevent them from having a say. The findings provide new evidence that disabled young people are being denied the right to have a say in how local services, such as education, health and leisure are being developed and delivered, and there is still a long way to go to make sure disabled young people can participate meaningfully in strategic and operational decisions about service development.
