Notes for all practitioners including those working in: children and family social work; health; education; residential care; early years; youth services; youth justice; police; independent and third sector; and adult services who might be supporting parents with disabled children or involved in the transition between child and adult services.


3. Scope and Purpose

These additional practice notes are for all practitioners including those working in: children and family social work teams; health; education; schools; residential care; early years; youth services; the youth justice system; the police; independent and third sector; and for adult services who might be supporting parents with disabled children or involved in the transition between these child and adult services.

It aims to raise practitioners' awareness of the increased vulnerability of disabled children and ensure that practitioners take this into account in their involvement with disabled children and their families.
