Law in Disabled Children's Rights - Cerebra Legal Entitlements Research Project
The Cerebra Legal Entitlements Research Project has been established at Cardiff Law School with funding support from Cerebra, a unique charity set up to help improve the lives of children with neurological conditions. The Research project’s aims are:
- To provide support for disabled children, their families and advisers, who are encountering difficulties with the statutory agencies in relation to the provision of health, social care and education;
- To identify why problems occur concerning the discharge by public bodies of their statutory functions;
- To identify accessible and effective procedures that enable disabled children and their families to maximise the benefits of their legal entitlements;
- To identify effective ways by which legal entitlements can be delivered to disabled children and their families.
Referrals to the Research project are made via Cerebra.
