Children with Disabilities Team

We work in close partnership with colleagues from all areas of Children’s Services, particularly the Central Bedfordshire Children with Disabilities Team. They are a specialist service that offers support to children with disabilities aged 0 to 18 and their families.

The service comprises of a small specialist team of social workers and assistants who have relevant knowledge, experience and skills. They work closely with other services such as health, education and community organisations. 

They offer a range of services such as:

  • short breaks (respite) provision
  • leisure and recreation
  • long-term residential care
  • the disability register
  • transition planning
  • direct payments
