Our policy and campaigns work
The Children's Society champions the rights of disabled children and young people. We work with disabled children and young people to challenge discrimination and ensure they are included in ordinary everyday activities. Our policy team listens to what children and young people tell us and uses learning from our national practice base to find solutions to the problems children are facing today and build support for change among key decision-makers.

We are striving to ensure that the legal rights of all disabled children are upheld so that they are heard and taken seriously in all decisions that affect them. We recently ran a campaign to establish a legal right for every disabled child or young person placed away from home to access an independent advocate.
