Services for disabled children

Address details
Organisation Barnardo's
Address 40 Rupert Street, Nechells

Birmingham

We provide family support, working in the house and in the community. The parents remain in the house with the worker until everyone is confident that the worker can manage the care of the child.
The main features of our services are:

-we work both in the home and within the community
-we offer one-to-one support
-we offer sibling support. The majority of disabled children live at home with their families. Caring for a disabled child can be a heavy burden both practically and emotionally. It is not only the parents who need support but brothers and sisters too.
-the support offered to the child, their family or carers and siblings, will best meets the needs of the individual child and their family.
-the family support worker is a vital service that gives parents or carers a much-needed break. Perhaps a few hours to allow them to spend time with their other children. The family support worker can also help with developing good parenting skills, and offer advice and guidance.
-we can accompany parents or carers to appointments, helping with the other children and stimulating the disabled child in the home.

Toy library
Barnardo's Harris House project has a toy library where toys can be loaned out to families.

Disabled facilities
