Children with disabilities and complex medical conditions

Medway Council has a dedicated Disabled Children’s Team that offers a range of flexible services to allow disabled children to remain at home with their families. The team works in partnership with health and voluntary organisations to offer families appropriate services to meet their individual needs.

The Disabled Children’s Team is based in a purpose-built resource centre called Parklands in Oxford Road, Gillingham. More information on the range of services available from Parklands to parents and carers of disabled children can be obtained by contacting the centre direct using the contact details given below.

Alternatively, information can be found on the Family Information Service Directory. The centre also carries out individual work with children and families where social work input or respite provision is needed.

Children’s Disability Link register

Parents and carers of disabled children are encouraged to join the Children’s Disability Link register, a database maintained at Parklands. The disability register offers families regular updated information that may be of interest to them. Information held on the register is used to plan new services and highlight the needs of local families. Find out more by emailing disabilitylink@medway.gov.uk.
