Guide: Getting an assessment and accessing support from the Disabled Children’s Service


Our Disabled Children’s Service (DCS) offers advice, support and practical help to families who have a disabled child or young person.

We use something known as eligibility criteria to understand whether you are likely to need support from us.

The type of help and support you could receive is dependent on your individual needs, which we identify through an assessment.

To make the information about how we work clearer, we have created this guide to how this assessment process works and our eligibility criteria, including how it is applied.
