Children’s Disability Forum
Huddleston Centre coordinates the City & Hackney Children’s Disability Forum (CDF), funded by the NHS CCG to enable parents, carers, disabled children and young people to provide feedback to commissioners and statutory services about health and well-being services provisions for disabled children. There is the ‘Young Peoples Voices’, ‘Parents/Carers Forum’ and ‘Deep Dives’ interventions that enable young people and their parents/carers give feedback in matters that concern them most in healthcare services provision.
These are done through coffee mornings, information sessions, support groups and listening posts every 6-8 weeks. All are welcome.
