Disability social care
Children and young people with disabilities have the same rights as others. We want to make sure that they and their families have the social care information, guidance and support, where needed, to help them meet their potential. Every child, young person and family is different so we will always work with you to make sure what we do is right for you and your family.
If you are over 18 and are not already supported by disability social care 0-25, you can request an adult social care assessment.
How resources are allocated
Following an assessment (for children up to 18 year olds), the Referral and Access Team will continue to support you and review your plans if you are eligible for short breaks funding or early help support.
If your child and family meet the eligibility for social care support, you will work with one of the Disabled Children’s Social Care teams below. The young adults team could support some young adults up to the age of 25 to ensure a smooth transition into adult services.
