Child Disability Index

Every local authority is required by law to maintain a register of children and young people within their area with any disability which has a "marked impact on their daily life". In Swansea this register of disabled children is known as the 'Child Disability Index'.

Examples of children who are registered on the Index include those with:

  • Autistic spectrum disorder
  • Behavioural/social/emotional difficulties
  • A medical condition
  • A physical disability
  • Sensory impairment
  • A learning disability/difficulty
  • Multiple disabilities

The purpose of Swansea's Child Disability Index is to:

  • Collect and supply information for planning for future years and the immediate future 

Registration on the Child Disability Index is voluntary.

How to Register

Registration on the Index can be completed by a parent, a main carer or the young person in question (depending on their age and understanding).

There are two ways of registering:

  • Print the Registration Form (Word and PDF versions available) below and return to the address on the form. 

There is further information on The Swansea Child Disability Index and on the links below.
