I've just had an email from the Every Disabled Child Matters campaign group updating me about the progress of The Disabled Children (Family Support) Bill.
This Bill will have its second reading in Parliament on Friday 23rd February and this debate is crucial to the chances of the Bill becoming law. All the information about the Bill can be found here. It is important to get as many MPs as possible to support the Bill and to commit to turning up to the debate on 23rd February. Thanks to people like you and me contacting our MPs, pledges of support for the Bill from MPs are starting to come in, and the campaign now has 230 MP supporters. If you haven't yet contacted your MP you can contact them here. If you have already contacted your MP pass on this information to get as many MPs as possible to support it.
Finally the Every Disabled Child Matters group have set themselves a new supporter target of 25,000 supporters by July 2007. This is the reporting date for the comprehensive spending review, which we hope will bring new money for disabled children's services. To help them reach our new supporter target, please continue spread the word about Every Disabled Child Matters.
