Additional Information

The Western Trust provides a range of services for disabled children and young people with a learning disability, physical disability and/or with physical health needs or sensory needs. These services aim to help disabled children and young people live lives that are as full as possible. We use ‘Family Support’ across all our programmes for disabled children and young people, but only where it is the right and safe thing to do. We have set up a ‘Family Support panel’ involving all agencies working with disabled children and young people. Its role is to promote the best outcome for children and families based on a clear assessment of need. It provides a range of family support services that can be accessed by social workers in the Children’s Disability Programme. These services include: Western Education Support Team (WEST): a multi-disciplinary team including community children’s nurses, health visitors, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and family support workers social work service carer’s assessments community learning disability nursing service behaviour support service sensory support services transitions services: to help young people through their final years of school and into careers and work assessment and treatment at Lakeview Hospital children’s ward respite services such as: overnight respite in the Respite Cottages, Derry and Beltany House, Omagh Host Family Scheme domiciliary care Direct Payments summer schemes We work closely with a wide range of statutory and voluntary agencies to support our work with children and young people.
