The Index for Children and Young People with Disabilities or Additional Needs
The Index is Cardiff’s voluntary register for children and young people with disabilities or additional needs. Working alongside a range of support services and professionals, it ensures that families of children and young people with disabilities or additional needs are kept up to date with information that is both relevant and beneficial to them. In addition, it assists the planning and co-ordination of services supporting those children, young people and their families.
You can sign up to The Index if you are:
- A parent / carer of a child or young person aged 0 – 18 years with disabilities or additional needs
- A professional working with children and young people 0 – 18 years with disabilities or additional needs
To be included on The Index the child or young person must:
- be aged up to 18 years
- have a diagnosed disability, be in the process of diagnosis or have confirmed ongoing additional needs
Once signed up to The Index you will receive the Index e-news – regular emails providing information about services, activities and events.
