Children's Disability Register
The Children's Disability Register is the register of children and young people with disabilities in Waltham Forest. It is used to plan services for them.
Which children are included on the register?

Chronic ill health and who require additional help from their parent(s) / carer(s), or other to take part in day-to-day activities.
Does my child have to be registered?
No, the register is completely voluntary and can only work for all of us, if as many people as possible agree to put their children on the register.
What information is required?
General information about your child is collected, such as name, address, date of birth, as well as information about the childcare provider or school they attend, the services they access, and their diagnosis. A copy of the form is available to download below, as well as a link to the form online.
What are the benefits to my child?
As the register is used to help plan services, the more information we have, the better that planning will be. We also email parents with details of services, activities and events that are running in the borough and beyond as soon as we receive the information. For that reason, it is important to provide us with an email address if you have one.
