Children and Young People with Disabilities

The Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership oversees a number of Northern Ireland sub-groups established to take forward integrated planning on a Northern Ireland wide basis, including a Sub-Group on Children and Young People with Disabilities.

“The focus of this sub-group is children and young people who have a physical, sensory or learning disability or prolonged illness or condition which, in interaction with various barriers, and without the provision of adequate support services, may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others and hinder their optimal potential for personal development and social inclusion.”
