Have you heard of the Lambeth Liberty Card?

Lambeth have a Children and Young People's Disability Register
What is the Children & Young People's Disability Register?

It is a voluntary register of the children and young people aged 0-18 years with a disability who live in the Borough of Lambeth.

What is it for?

The Children Act 1989 requires the Local Authority to keep a register of children and young people with disabilities. The register will enable us to plan and support appropriate, local services for disabled children and young people.

What are the benefits of registering?

The local Authority will use the information from the register to plan services to ensure that resources are used effectively. Your views are very important to us. We will use your views to improve and develop services to achieve better outcomes for children and young people with disabilities in Lambeth. We will send you up to date information on a regular basis. The child or young person will receive a 'Liberty' card which identifies them as having a disability. This card is acknowledged and supported by a number of local and national organisations, companies and facilities.
