How to get social care support for your child

We can offer help to 0 to 18 year olds with:

  • severe and profound learning disabilities
  • physical and sensory disabilities
  • a combination of disabilities.

Finding out what care and support you need

A member of our Disabled Children's or Young People's Team will assess your child's and family's needs. This means we will talk to you about your situation and find out what you are worried about or what changes you would like to make in your life.

After the assessment, we'll agree what kind of care and support you need. This could include:

If we can't offer you any support because your assessment shows you're not eligible for our specialist disability services, we will always tell you about other organisations that could help you.
