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 eligibility criteria to decide whether you are likely to need support from us.

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

This guide explains the eligibility criteria, how it is applied and how the assessment process works.
