Children with disabilities

Where can I find support?

Support for children with disabilities is available from a range of services:

The Council's Children's Disability service is based at 3 Knowsley Place, Duke Street, Bury and provides an assessment and care management service for children who have a permanent and substantial disability or a life-limiting illness. The legislative framework for the team is the Children Act 2004, but work is also undertaken under The Carers and Disabled Children Act 2000.

Information relating to the following areas can be found in the Bury Directory below:
