That this House welcomes the recommendations from the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Cerebral Palsy's report: Transition to Adulthood; urges the Government to implement an Access to Education, Employment Rights and Training Opportunities (AEERT) Bill Speech to open education, employment, and training opportunities to all of those living with cerebral palsy and other lifelong, chronic, fluctuating conditions; believes that each child and young person with cerebral palsy and their family must have a dedicated lead care professional to act as an advocate, coordinator and support from the point of diagnosis through to the completion of their transition to adulthood; further believes that each integrated care system must enhance the empowerment of young people living with cerebral palsy by creating dedicated budgets for the individual to access the necessary resources and services from the public, independent and voluntary sectors to prevent the deterioration of their health and wellbeing in adulthood; is grateful for the contributions of those who submitted evidence for that report; and supports the recommendations contained within that report and calls on the Government to implement the recommendations in that report at the earliest opportunity.
