Any civilized society should constantly strive to ensure that every person is able to fully play their part. I am very pleased to accept the role as Ambassador for Include Me TOO and to offer my support to the National ‘Include Me TOO’ Charter of Rights for Disabled Children and Young People. Equality is more than a word, it is a behaviour, an approach which puts people at the heart, from the heart, and enables potential to be realised. Children and young people, regardless of background or perceived ability have the right for their views, their needs, their hopes and dreams to be fully heard and taken into account. All our futures depend on this.
