In May 2007 the Labour administration launched 'Aiming High for Disabled Children: Better support for families' to improve service provision across the board for disabled children and their families, and enhance equality and opportunity for them. Members of Parents in Touch have been part of the steering group in Hounslow and have advocated that children with complex and severe disability need access to play within the borough without a referral to social care services.
As a steering group we have allocated £340,800 of the capital spend in 2010/11 be invested in the enclosed space in Redlees Park currently used for the One O'clock Club, increasing the indoor space and making the facilities accessible to older disabled children.
We are asking parents, carers, friends and families to sign our petition in support of this much-needed provision by improving facilities at Redlees Park, and to ask their family, friends and colleagues to also sign in support of our cause.
We, the undersigned, call on the London Borough of Hounslow to fulfil its obligations under the Aiming High for Disabled Children initiative and commit the (ring-fenced) capital funding to improving facilities in Redlees Park.
