Norfolk Register of Disabled Children and Young People
This Register of Disabled Children is a separate part of the main database that holds details of all children known to Norfolk County Council through schools, early years settings and other services.
Like all local authorities in England, Norfolk County Council is obliged by law to keep a register of disabled children and young people living in their area. This helps us to make better decisions when we are planning and developing services for all families and children. The Register also acts as a mailing list so we can send families useful information on a regular basis. Although we must keep a Register, whether you register a child or young person is up to you.
Are you are 16 or 17 with additional needs? You can join the Norfolk Register of Disabled Young People by completing the young people’s online registration form.
