The Disabled Children’s Database is managed by Sefton’s Aiming High Family Support Team and is part of our commitment to improve services for disabled children and young people.
We want everyone with a disabled child or teenager in Sefton to register which will enable us to look at numbers of children and young people and help plan our services more accurately.
We will not disclose your information to third parties unless there is a legal requirement for us to do so. The register is voluntary and completely secure. If you choose to register please complete the online form and by doing this you are giving your permission for us to use your contact details.
Once you have registered we will keep you up-to-date on services that are useful to you, whether they’re provided by Sefton Council or other providers. We will also share relevant news and information for disabled children, young people and families.
As well as having access to targeted information, advice and support, you will also receive a copy of the Aiming High for Disabled Children newsletter by email three times each year.
You should consider registering your child if they have a disability. Under the Equality Act 2010, a person has a disability if he/she has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term adverse effect on his/her ability to carry out normal day to day activities
- A hearing impairment
- A visual impairment
- A learning disability
- A physical disability
- A chronic/life threatening physical illness
- A communication disorder (including autism)
- A conciousness disorder (e.g. epilepsy)
We do not register children who have Emotional and Behavioural difficulties, Learning difficulties e.g Dyslexia which are not associated with any of the above disabilities.
Children do not need to have a formal diagnosis.
