Additional Needs Database for Children and Young People

What is the Additional Needs Database for Children and Young People?

The register is a database that holds information about children and young people with additional needs who live in the Cheshire West & Chester area.

Why do we have a register and why should I sign up?

The Children’s Act 1989 requires the Council to keep a register. The register helps us to know who our disabled children are and which area they live in.  This information supports the Council plan for and develop services for disabled children and young people 

The first 1000 families to join Cheshire West and Chester's Children with Additional Needs and Disability Register will receive a free MAX card. 

 In order to qualify for a card, your child must:

  • Be identified as having special educational needs or a disability
  • Be aged 0-19 years
  • To find out more about MAX cards please visit:


Do you have to register your child?

No, the register is voluntary. Your child does not have to be on the register to receive services    and support from health or social care.  You can request to have your child’s details removed at any time. contact us here
