Who we support and referral reason

We support children with a physical disability and/or moderate learning difficulties. The child will have mobility issues and/or gross motor difficulties which are impacting on their everyday life.

Where we can deliver our services

Services are provided within a number of locations including:

How to refer, who is involved and who to contact

New referrals must come from a health professional such as:

  • GP
  • Ryegate consultant
  • speech and language therapy

Schools cannot refer directly.  Parents must go to the GP to ask for a referral if no other health professional is already involved.

If the child has been seen in the past by the service and discharged, the parent or school can re-refer.
