Specialist Support

Specialist support is provided by Children’s Social Care.

If your child or young person is assessed as eligible for specialist services, a supporting package of care may be created to meet your child and family’s individual needs.

You may also be given the option to receive a direct payment to purchase the support for your child yourself, in line with your child’s assessed need and care plan.
