Why do we have a register and what is it used for?
The Children’s Act 1989 requires us to keep a register. The register helps us to plan and develop services for children and young people with disabilities, it helps us to know who we have and where they are. In addition to planning, the register also helps us to involve and inform families as well as keep in touch and share news and information.
Why should I sign up to it?
The register is used as a means for us to keep families updated with any new developments. Once you have added your child to the register, you will receive our newsletter called Family Focus
. This includes information on local and national services, charities and events that are relevant to children and young people with disabilities and their families. In addition to this, you may, from time to time be sent other information from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council that is relevant to you.
