Avoiding Crisis Support Needed

Authors: Bringing Us Together and Respond

Respond and Bringing us Together are working in partnership to provide information and support to families of disabled children and young people who are approaching or who are currently in crisis. The aim is to empower and support families to use the law to challenge services and ensure they make appropriate provision for the child or young person.

In the Winter of 2015/16 they carried out a survey which was completed by 86 families from across England.

Respondents were predominantly young people and their families:

  • 24% of the people represented were under the age of 10
  • 66% were under the age of 18 

A high number of the families who responded had already experienced at least one crisis. The report is available to read and download below or alternatively here.
