Child getting referred

We have a specialist team of social workers and assistants whose role is to support children and young people with disabilities up to the age of 18 and their families.

The team cannot respond to the needs of every child who has a difficulty and so CBC has an eligibility criteria. Broadly this includes children who have a 'permanent and substantial disability'.

How to make a referral

Call the duty officer on 0300 300 8314.

The duty office is based at:

Ampthill Area Office
Houghton Close
MK45 2TG

Referrals can be made by the child’s family, a professional working with the family or in contact with the child, or by an individual who may be concerned about the welfare of a child with a disability.
