The Global Disability Children & Young People’s Charter was developed during the Global Disability Summit which took place in London 2018. Children and young people with disabilities from across the globe representing 23 countries shared their views on what matters to them in regards to the Global Disability Summit six themes, this included key messages they wanted included in their own Global Disability Children and Young People’s Charter. This charter has 12 commitments which children and young people with disabilities are requesting action form across the world to protect their rights to provide support and resources, increase access to opportunities to live a full life with many possibilities to achieve their goals and full potential.
We would welcome your support by signing up to the Global Disability Children and Young People’s Charter on any of the 12 commitments you can deliver upon. Please note there is no cost to sign up to this charter. The aim is to strengthen the rights and inclusion for children and young people with disabilities by aligning the actions and support gathered for their charter alongside the commitments already made for the Global Disability Summit 2018 Charter for Change. We aim to measure the advancement following the messages provided by children and young people with disabilities on the things that matter to them and the importance of their inclusion, participation and rights shared during the Global Disability Summit.
