As an Ambassador to Contact a Family and a positive parent voice, Ruby was invited to attend a meeting with MPs at the Houses of Parliament to share experiences of living with a disabled child and advise on policy changes over the next 5 years. This was a great chance to share views and experiences and meet with Chris Evans MP.
Every day families with disabled children give back in so many different ways, contributing to their local communities and the economy. Too often this contribution is overshadowed by poverty, isolation, and misunderstanding, not to mention fighting for basic help and support. Contact a Family wants to change this, and together with families, reshape the next chapter for families with disabled children. There has never been a more important time to ensure that MPs understand the reality of family life.
Ruby took the time to meet with her local MP – Nigel Huddleston – and they discussed various issues including Funny Blood and how Nigel would support families in Mid Worcestershire throughout his candidacy. More from Nigel soon!
