This publication sets out the main findings from the second national sample survey of parents of disabled children in England. This was conducted between July and November 2009 on the Department's behalf by TNS-BMRB.
The primary purpose of the survey is to measure parental experience of services for disabled children and provide a 2009-10 score for the national performance indicator 5 for the Public Service Agreement on Child Health and Wellbeing (PSA 12). The secondary purpose of the survey is to provide 2009-10 figures for the large majority of local authorities and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). This will include a second tranche of scores for the 30 local authority areas for the National Indicator Set for local authorities (NI 54), and also NHS Vital Signs indicators for Primary Care Trusts (VSC33) in PCT areas which have boundaries exactly coterminous with these LA areas. The remaining local authorities and PCT areas will have their scores published for the first time in this publication.
The survey and indicator have been developed as part of the Aiming High for Disabled Children programme.
