Abstract

Before you buy equipment for your child we would advise you to seek specialist advice to help you plan for both immediate and long term needs, to increase awareness of the alternatives on the market, and to check whether the equipment you need can be provided by the statutory services.

Everyone, including carers, has the right to ask social services for a community care assessment. The council assessor will consider the type and level of need and suggest a range of solutions that may include provision of equipment.
