Children and young people with disabilities register

The Register for Children and Young People with Disabilities helps us to keep families informed about local services available in their area. It also helps us plan and develop services for children and young people with disabilities. You can add your child or young person, aged 0 – 25 years, to the Register using the Local Offer Directory.
