Disabled Children’s Partnership – Pandemic Impact report
During the pandemic children with special educational needs and/or disabilities were left isolated and the vital support they rely on daily reduced or ceased all together. In some cases the effects of this isolation and reduction in services on their physical and mental health and that of their families have been devastating. The Disabled Children’s Partnership have carried out extensive research throughout the pandemic and have now released a report to show their findings. The report entitled ‘Then There Was Silence’ highlighted many areas for improvement but notably mentions how the voluntary sector responded and adapted to meet the needs of disabled children and their families as well as making recommendations for government and the NHS, Please follow the link below to their website where you can read the full report.
