"I would like to thank everyone involved in producing the Ordinary Lives paper. It is very powerful. It sets out clearly the expectation that every child, young person and young adult should have an ordinary life. It sets out a challenge to all professionals that we should be working to ensure this, as well as making sure that we have high aspirations for all our children, young people and young adults."

Meredith Teasdale, Director of Education, City of Wolverhampton Council
