The Children’s Disability Service (CDS), like Family Information Services, will provide you with information about universal services and more specialist groups that can offer support, without the need for an assessment.
Children in care
NSPCC – Safeguarding children with special educational needs and disabilities
Adults who work with children and young people with SEND should be aware of the additional needs children may have that could mean they are more vulnerable to abuse and/or less able to speak out if something isn’t right.
Young people released from custody
Educational arrangements for young people released from custody who have an EHCP and who don’t have an EHCP.
Support for young carers.
It is our aim that short breaks will contribute to keeping disabled children safe and healthy, enabling them to enjoy new activities, make friends, and have new learning opportunities, as well as preparing teenagers for adulthood.
