Children with Disabilities

The Children with Disabilities Team works with children (between the ages of 0 and 18 years of age) who have complex or significant disabilities.  The aims of the team are to:-

  • Support children and young people with disabilities and their parents or carers to maintain family life in their home community.
  • Provide support to help maximise life opportunities and participation of children and young people with disabilities.
  • Provide support to help children and young people with disabilities maximise their full potential.
  • Safeguard children and young people with disabilities.
  • Ensure the views, feelings and aspirations of children and young people are central so they have maximum choice in planning their own future.
  • Support children and young people with disabilities to develop as much age-appropriate independence as possible.
  • Support early planning, goal setting  and transitions for increasing independence and moving to adult hood
