Staff, parents and professionals that support and work with disabled children and young people

We are starting a feasibility study to explore the opportunities and benefits for a new building which would be a Centre of Excellence for Disabled Children and Young People in York. We are also looking at expanding and developing the FIRST (Family Intensive Rapid Support Team) service for children and young people with Learning Disabilities, Autism and complex behaviour.

We want to bring staff, parents and professionals together to start the conversation about what this could look like and how we could work together in the future to provide support and services to disabled children, young people and their families.

Thank you for a fab and informative day.

Anon, from the family information and activities day

It was good to be at a workshop where everyone could benefit – families and ‘professionals’. We were sitting together listening to someone else share their wise words and there was no ‘us’ and ‘them’ between service users and service providers.
