About the Children with Disabilities Register
The Children with Disabilities Register is an information database that is designed to hold the contact details of disabled children and young people under the age of 18 in Central Bedfordshire.
By registering, families can be kept regularly up to date on all the services and support in Central Bedfordshire. The Register is used for statistical information and also helps to keep families involved in the development of new services and the consultation process.
What information will be recorded?
Information held on the register will include the child or young person's:
- date of birth
- home address
- telephone number
- family’s first language
- information in relation to the child’s disability
- parent or guardian's name
Where will the information be kept, and can I see it?
The information you provide is held confidentially and securely on a computer with us. To see the information held about your child, please make a request to us at the address below.

Can I opt out of the Register at any time?
