About the register

The register has been created in association with PCAN (Parents of Children with Additional Needs), an independent parent led forum for all parents and carers of children with additional needs in Kirklees. PCAN welcomes any parent or carer, whether they are just becoming aware that their child may have additional needs or whether they have a child with a confirmed diagnosis. PCAN aims to help parents get good information, support each other and provide a collective voice on behalf of children.

If you think your child/children have additional needs, you can help make sure that fewer parents struggle to get helpful information. Your contribution will ensure that good quality information is available to Kirklees Council, the NHS and organisations supporting children and families with additional needs.

Choosing whether to enter information about your child/children with additional needs is up to you; this is a voluntary database. However, by adding your information, this helps to build up a more accurate picture of the population of children/young people with additional needs in Kirklees and helps us to make better decisions when planning and developing services and support information. Thank you.
