Surrey Children's Disability Register (SCDR)

The SCDR is a voluntary register for children and young people with a disability or impairment, aged 0-18 years and living in Surrey. The register helps us plan and monitor services and also operates as a contact list to provide regular information and consultation about short break opportunities, funded by Surrey County Council, through the Surrey Short Breaks for Disabled Children Team.

Max Card

This is a FREE card which allows families with children currently registered on the SCDR to access various activities around the country at a discounted rate. The scheme is also open to new registrations so anyone interested in receiving a Max Card should register using the details above. Once registered, families will automatically receive the discount card in the post.

Surrey Domiciliary Care Service

The Surrey Domiciliary Care Service is a responsive service based within the Children's Service and takes referrals from the social workers of the Children with Disabilities teams East and West. The service covers the whole county and aims to provide support either within the home to enable parents/carers to have a break from their caring duties or within the community to enable a child to access leisure activities.

The last Inspection report is available to be viewed at the bottom of the page.
