Children and Young People's Disability Register and Liberty Card
Last Updated on Monday, 08 August 2016 15:15 Written by Administrator Friday, 05 August 2016 09:04
What is the Children & Young People's Disability Register?
It is a voluntary register of the children and young people aged 0-18 years with a disability who live in the Borough of Lambeth.
What is it for?
The Children Act 1989 requires the Local Authority to keep a register of children and young people with disabilities. The register will enable us to plan and support appropriate, local services for disabled children and young people.
What are the benefits of registering?
The local Authority will use the information from the register to plan services to ensure that resources are used effectively. Your views are very important to us. We will use your views to improve and develop services to achieve better outcomes for children and young people with disabilities in Lambeth. We will send you up to date information on a regular basis. The child or young person will receive a 'Liberty' card which identifies them as having a disability. This card is acknowledged and supported by a number of local and national organisations, companies and facilities.
Who can see the information on the register?
The register is kept on a computer. Statistical information - figures only with no names – is given to organisations who ask for it. Personal information can only be given to certain people in Health, Education or Social Services who need to know it. We would not share any information if you do not give consent.
Who can register?
You can register your child if he/she is under 18 years of age, has a disability and lives in Lambeth. We would like the parents of all children who have a disability to register their child so we can make the best plans for the future, you can leave out any questions you are not happy with.
How do I register?
You can downolad and complete the Lambeth Liberty Card application form. Alternatively , you can request a copy of the application form:
- by post by contacting Mrs Tracy Imms, Children & Young People's Disability Register Coordinator, London Borough of Lambeth, 10th Floor, International House, Canterbury Crescent, London, SW9 7QE;
- or call 0207 926 9140.
Who should fill in the form?
The application form can be completed by the parent/carer/guardian of a disabled child or if you are a disabled young person aged 16-18 years you can fill it in yourself. Registration is voluntary. You do not need to be on the register in order to be assessed or receive services. You can request to be removed from the register at any time by contacting us directly. Registration does not automatically mean that your child is eligible for services; each application will be assessed on each individual's needs.
