Children and Young People's Disability Register

We want to make sure we know how many disabled children, or children with a complex need, live in the area of Stockton-on-Tees. This is something all councils have to do and it will help us improve services now and in the future.

Benefits of being on the register

Registering your information could give you and your family the chance to influence and shape future services.

Should I register my son/daughter?

Yes, if he/she;

  • has a learning difficulty, mental health, medical condition or a physical disability which substantially limits or prevents him/her from living and developing as other children of a similar age
  • is 0 to 17 years old
  • and lives in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees

Registering is entirely voluntary, but the more information we can gather about the needs of disabled or complex needs children and young people the better we can plan for services in your area.
