Championing equal access on public transport  

Disabled people travel up to a third less than non-disabled people impacting on access to employment, healthcare, education and social activities. Barriers to public transport are not limited to reliability and the physical infrastructure but also include the attitudes and behaviours of staff and fellow passengers.

If everyone using public transport takes small steps to be mindful of their fellow passengers, we can all make transport more inclusive.

Social care assessments and duties: children and young people under 18

Children’s Services have a duty to provide support and services to children in need in their area to safeguard and support their welfare. The legal definition of a child in need includes a child with a disability. In order to find out whether a child is in need and what services are required to support them they need to carry out what is known as a “section 17” assessment.

In this article we will explore:

  • How to get an assessment
  • What happens during an assessment
  • Child in need plans
  • The type of support that could be provided to children in need

If there is a particular area you would like to know more about or if you would like to speak to one of our  specialist team then please contact us at cop@boyesturner.com
