Graham Stuart, the MP for Beverley and Holderness, is encouraging young disabled people to take part in a survey being conducted by the charity Whizz-Kidz, to examine the legacy of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
The ‘Generation Inspired?’ consultation will run until Christmas, and the findings will form the basis of a manifesto to inform those delivering the Paralympic legacy about what young disabled people want.
The excitement created by the outstanding performance of our athletes presents a unique opportunity to achieve a step-change in opportunities for people with disabilities.”
Whizz-Kidz runs the largest network of young disabled people in the UK with over one thousand ‘Ambassadors’ across Great Britain. For over twenty years, the charity has provided mobility equipment, training and work placements to transform young disabled people’s lives and build bright futures. It aims to reach the 70,000 children and young people still waiting for the right equipment and skills training to live independent and full lives.
The survey can be found at http://bit.ly/WKGenInspired. Parents and carers are also encouraged to take part.
