A funding award has been granted to Professor Luke Clements, who will lead on a project focusing on ‘Delivering legal rights and entitlements to children with neurodevelopmental disorders and their families’, in order to:
- Provide support for disabled children, their families and advisers, who are encountering difficulties with statutory agencies in relation to the provision of health and social care.
- Identify why problems concerning the discharge by public bodies of their statutory functions occur.
- Identify accessible and effective procedures that enable disabled children and their families to maximise the benefits of their legal entitlements.

In January 2016, this Project moved from Cardiff University to the University of Leeds where Professor Luke Clements is now the Cerebra Professor of Law and Social Justice.
