The Disabled Children Register (DCR) is a secure database which aims to capture information about all children and young people aged 0-18 years with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Sunderland. The information that you give us will be used anonymously to show the use of and demand for services in Sunderland. We will use this information to help us to plan, monitor and develop appropriate facilities and services for disabled children and their families.
The DCR is managed by the Sunderland Families Information Service. Registering is voluntary but we would like to encourage as many of you as possible to register so that we can get as clear a picture as possible of the needs for services in Sunderland.
To register you must complete a simple online form which will allow you to provide us with details of your child. We can use your contact details to keep you up-to-date with developments in services and other relevant information for disabled children and young people, but you will have to let us know that you are happy for us to contact you in this way.
You can ask to have your child or young person's details removed from the register at any time however young people will automatically be removed once they turn 18 years old.
