They work closely with lots of different professionals including; health visitors, health support workers and occupational therapists.

The Child Disability Team works with children and young people where:

  • the primary reason for the involvement of social care services would be because of their disability;
  • the impact of their disability is assessed as severe or profound;
  • their disability is such that it requires a service that is specialist.

The team offer a wide range of services which aim to provide comprehensive information and advice, to support the development of disabled children, and to assist children and their families to lead lives which are as fulfilling as possible.
