Children with Disabilities Team

The Children with Disabilities Team is a children’s social care team that provides a service to severely disabled children (learning and physical disabilities) and children substantially or permanently affected by illness, injury or congenital condition.

The team provides a social work support service to families who have children who are assessed as being “in need” or who are at risk of harm as a result of abuse or neglect. The team also provides a service to disabled children who are unable to remain in their own homes and who come into care.

We assess need and provide social work support as part of a formal plan aimed at improving outcomes for the child or young person.

Where a young person will need support after they become an adult, the Children with Disabilities Team works closely with Doncaster Council's Adult Services Team to ensure a smooth transition from children’s to adult’s services.
