What is the Disabled Children & Young Person's Register?

  • All Local Authorities have a duty to have a record or register of disabled children in their area, under the Childcare Act 1989. Our Disabled Children & Young Persons Passport Plus is Liverpool's way of doing this

Who does it cover?

  • If you have a disabled child or are a young person aged up to 25, you can sign up for the Disabled Children & Young Person's Register. Our local definition of disability is based on the Equality Act 2010, which states that a person is disabled if they have a physical or mental impairment that has "substantial" and "long term" negative effects on their ability to do normal daily activities.

Some examples of what this would include are:-

  • ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), Autism or Aspergers, Behavioural / Emotional or Social Difficulties, Cerebral Palsy, Complex Health Needs, Dyspraxia, Global Development Delay, Learning Difficulty, Mobility Difficulty, Palliative Care Needs and Sight and / or Hearing Impairments.

Do I have to sign up?

  • No - signing up for the Disabled Children & Young Person's Register is completely voluntary - but we would encourage you to do so.

So why should I sign up then?

Once we have your details we will be able to keep you informed of what is available in the area and we will be able to tell you about any planned changes or developments that may affect you / your child. The information that we get from the Passport will also mean we have a clearer picture of where disabled children live and what their needs are. This will help us plan support services more effectively.
