The Children’s Disability Register is a secure database of children and young people with disabilities up to the age of 25 who live in Nottingham or Nottinghamshire, or who have their home base here. The Children Act 1989 requires all local authorities to maintain a register of disabled children. The information that you provide is then used by the authority to plan, monitor and develop appropriate facilities and services for disabled children and their families.
Registration is entirely voluntary, but this is a useful opportunity for you to let the authority know about your needs and the services that would be of use to you. If you join the Register, you may choose to have the IRIS Magazine delivered to you by post or email. It includes details of local events and activities for children and young people with disabilities.
Please remember, you can ask for a copy of the information that is held about your child(ren) and/or ask for them to be removed at any time.
