This service

Get healthcare at home 24 hours a day for disabled children and young people from registered nurses. They can:

  • help you understand and plan for your child’s healthcare needs
  • give support and advice
  • and teach you and your child the skills needed to manage their health.


With us it’s much more than care – it’s helping your child learn important life skills for themselves, becoming more confident and independent. We never set limits on any child’s potential. That’s why we’ll work with you and your child to find out what matters most.

Is it for you?

We provide nursing care to children and young people up to 18 with any impairment, sometimes known as special needs. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties.

Getting started

We will talk with you and your child to find out what’s important and how they need to be supported. Together, we’ll develop a personal plan around the things you need to do, with a focus on what you’d like your child to achieve.

Your support staff

We’ll find nursing staff who and your child will get on with.

Supporting families with disabled children for 60 years, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff matters. We train our staff thoroughly to provide safe and quality support.

You can pay for using your direct payments, personal budgets, private income or through the local authority.

Book us for an hour or two as needed, or at a regular time that suits your family.
