Register as disabled (children)

The Children's Disability Register is a confidential list of names and basic information about children with disabilities, special or additional needs.

The Children Act 1989 required all local authorities to establish a register of children with a disability in their area. This will then be used to assist service planning to meet the needs of children with disabilities and their families. Children's names are added to the register at their parent's request, and in return parents can receive information about services available in their area.

The information held on the register is confidential. It is compliant with the GDPR. Only authorised workers from social care, education and health can access the information, via the Local Offer Information Officer.

If you are wanting to register a child under the age of 18 as disabled, email the children's disability team directly - childrensdisabilityteam@hullcc.gov.uk
