Services for children with disabilities, learning difficulties or life-limiting conditions

If your child has a diagnosed disability, learning difficulty or life-limiting condition, you may be able to get help, advice or support.

Short breaks

Short breaks can give parents and carers a break from caring for their disabled child.

Hospice care for children

Children's hospices provide care and support for children and young people up to 19-years-old who have life-threatening or life-limiting conditions, and their families.
