"Government policy assumes social inclusion is about having a job. Young disabled people say it is about having friends, choices and being listened to. Young disabled people who have high levels of support needs are absent from our communities. Policies and practice are developed without considering their views and needs. At the heart of this report are the direct experiences of 44 young people with high levels of physical, sensory and/or cognitive impairment. Their powerful messages have major implications for the current policy agenda and show what needs to be done to combat social exclusion"
