Children with Disabilities Team

The Children with Disabilities Team provides advice and information, assessment, family support, care packages, access to respite, child protection and looked after children services to families who have a 'severe or profoundly disabled' child or whose child has a chronic or terminal illness.

What support is available?

  • Practical support
  • Personal care in the family home (home care package)
  • Short Breaks (in house respite and day care support)
  • Residential services
  • Information on specialist support for carers
  • Support parents to apply for Direct Payments

Additionally, under the Carers Act 1995 anyone who regularly provides a substantial amount of care has the right to ask social services for a carer's assessment. You are eligible if you are the main carer, you live with the person you care for and being a carer has a substantial impact on your life.
To arrange an assessment of your needs, contact the customer contact centre.
