We believe that the basic needs for disabled children are no different from those of any other child. But we recognise that some disabled children have additional needs, or face additional barriers which inhibit and prevent their inclusion in society. And it is those children, that we endeavour to support.

This service covers:

  • Children’s Social Care Disability Service
  • Children’s Social Care Disability Early Support Services
  • Community Inclusion and Activity Team
  • Somerset Supporter Service
  • Direct Payment Scheme
  • Home based care
  • Short Breaks Foster Care

The team works closely with colleagues in the Health and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities services, and the Inclusion Team within Education.

  • Autism and Communications Service¬†(for children up to age 13)
  • Occupational Therapy Service – specialist environmental and functional assessors in the home, school, respite and other venues
