  • Family support work - Assessments completed jointly by health and social services teams and on-going support provided to families where necessary.
  • Welfare benefits advice - Information and advice in applying for a range of disability benefits
  • Transition support - Help for young people with the transition to adulthood.

  • Behavioural support - Therapeutic support in the home for families experiencing difficulties managing their child’s behaviour.
  • Short term breaks - Care for a disabled child at home or in a different setting to give parents a break.
  • Funded play provision/ activities for children/ young people - Information and advice to help you access local and specialist play services.
  • Direct Payments - Money given to parents/ carers or disabled young people aged 16+ to purchase the services they want themselves.
