Disabled Children and Young People's Service
What the service does
Our Children with Disabilities Team offers information, advice and practical help to families with children aged 0 to 13 who have a severe, permanent and substantial disability or long-term complex health problem, which impacts on their everyday living.
For young people aged 14 to 25, the Transitions Team provides this support.
The majority of young people that the Transitions Team works with will have transferred from the Children with Disabilities Team on their 14th birthday as a continuation of service, although they also receive new referrals from families, education and health services and anyone who may have a concern.
