Disability and special needs register

Why register?

By law we have to keep a register of children with disabilities living in Peterborough.  The register helps us plan services for children with disabilities. 

By registering your child, you will be made aware of specific support and leisure activities available in your local area. The Families Information Service maintains the voluntary Disability Register for Peterborough.

The register also helps us to ensure parents have the most up to date information and to help plan future services.

You don't have to register your child with us if you don't want to,.

Who can go on the register?

The definition of disability is taken from the Equalities Act 201 and can include:

  • autism/Asperger's Syndrome
  • ADHD
  • cerebral palsy
  • dyspraxia
  • sensory impairment
  • mobility problems
  • learning disability
  • medical conditions
  • terminal illness

We automatically remove your child's details once they reach 25 years old.  If you want to be removed earlier than this please contact the Families Information Service.
