Child Trust Fund Access – further debate in the House of Lords
On Monday 11th October 2021, the Child Trust Fund Access campaign was debated for a fifth time in the House of Lords.
Lord Young of Cookham, who is helping to drive the need for urgent reform to how disabled children can access their own savings when they turn 18, asked for an update on what progress has been made.
More than 13 months on from when the first Child Trust Funds began to mature, only 4 successful applications have been made to the Court of Protection, which we believe is indicative of a broken process that is failing disabled children and their families.
