PDCS member Will Collinson today travelled to Westminster to represent deaf children's rights. Well done and congratulations from everyone at the PDCS. Picture below shows Will was at the office of the 'Children's Commissioner' in Westminster. This post was created by the law, the Children Act 2004, the organisation works on behalf of children and young people to promote and protect their rights in England. They consider children and young people's views when they design services and Laws. Will is one of thirty young people from all over the country, who will be involved in 'Amplify' the group of young people who advise the children's Commissioner and her team. They will be at the heart of the Children's Commissioners work and make sure the voice of children and young people are taken seriously. The Commissioner's work is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) They will be leading projects and lobbying the Government. Will's particular interest is Article 23, Children with Disability and their rights to live a full and decent life in conditions to promote dignity, independence and an active role in the community. I was lucky enough to go as Will's interpreter and see these amazing young people in action. GO WILL!
