Children with disabilities

The Children with Disabilities Team is a children’s social care team that provides a service to severely disabled children (learning and physical disabilities) and children substantially or permanently affected by illness, injury or congenital condition.

The team provides a social work support service to families who have children who are assessed as being “in need” or who are at risk of harm as a result of abuse or neglect. The team also provides a service to disabled children who are unable to remain in their own homes and who come into the care of the Trust.

We assess need and provide social work support as part of a formal plan aimed at improving outcomes for the child or young person.

Where a young person will need support after they become an adult, the Children with Disabilities Team works closely with Doncaster Council's Adult Services Team to ensure a smooth transition from children’s to adult’s services.
