Disabled Children Parents Guides:
‘Disabled Children Parents’ Guide: Social Care, Housing and Health’: This guide has been prepared for parents of disabled children who want to know how to get help for their child’s social care, housing and health needs. http://www.cerebra.org.uk/English/getinformation/disabilityrightslegalissues/Pages/DisabledChildrenParents’GuideSocialCare,Housingand.aspx
This is the second of a series of guides to be published by Cerebra that aim to give parents of disabled children information on how to get the help and support they need. The first in the series ‘The Disabled Children Parents Guide: Education’ is also available on our website. Keep an eye out for our Guides on ‘Employment’ and ‘Money Matters’ which are due to be published later this year.
‘Supporting disabled children and young people who are victims of or witnesses to crime’. This guidance aims to provide information about:
