Disabled Children’s Service
**Coronavirus - care and support team update
We are aware Coronavirus may be affecting the ability of carers to support their disabled child. We understand that this may place a strain on family resources. We are working closely with our care providers to confirm their contingency plans and alternative arrangements.
The Disabled Children's Service provides social care support for families with disabled children. Our aim is to act early on before a situation can develop and have serious consequences for the child and family.
We carry out a detailed child and family needs assessment, which informs the child's support care package. The package can include:
- Help with personal care and social activities
- Short Breaks services
- Transistion services
- Direct payments
We refer high risk conditions to the Children In Need or Looked after Children Services.
