About this topic

Supporting Children with Disabilities during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic – with associated lockdowns, school closures, rising unemployment and worsening poverty levels – has had a heavy impact upon children with disabilities and their families. They have faced particular challenges such as restrictions on home visits from support workers, accessibility of sanitation facilities or venues offering food relief, as well as discrimination and stigma around their vulnerability to the virus.

In these Practitioner Guidance Papers we share the approaches of three Family for Every Child Members in providing focused care to children with disabilities and their families during the pandemic. We highlight the adaptations that the organisations made, alongside the learnings and challenges faced, and we share tips for other practitioners on how to become disability-inclusive.
