Children with Disabilities - Social Care Team

The Children with Disabilities Team manages cases where disability is the overriding factor to consider with regards to outcomes and impact for the child.

Short Break sessions are currently suspended due to the Coronavirus. Details of alternative support and virtual sessions can be found Rochdale SEND Local Offer COVID-19 Help and Guidance.

What we do

The Children with Disabilities Team sits within the Early Help and Schools Department and we work alongside our Special Education Needs, Rochdale Additional Needs, Education Physiology, Hearing Impairment and Visual Impairment Team colleagues.

Our main function is to assess and offer appropriate Short Break Services to children who have a diagnosed disability and/or complex health needs and their families.

Some children are also in need of safeguarding and in these cases we also manage children in the child protection process including Child Protection Conference, Public Law Outline and Proceedings.
