"Our Accessing Public Services Toolkit Workshops are designed to help families access the services that their children need, and are entitled to.
Our popular Accessing Public Services Toolkit aims to support disabled people and carers, as well as their families and advisers, who are encountering difficulties with the statutory agencies in relation to the provision of health, social care and education support services. The toolkit aims to unpick these problems and to develop effective strategies for resolving them."

Please share this resource widely to help families, wider workforce, volunteers and advocates to be best prepared and skilled to support young people with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism.
What is Taste Buddies?
Taste Buddies is a community-based group programme, run by dieticians, for parents/carers of children with restricted diets who are registered with a GP in the Knowsley or St. Helens area.
Using the latest evidence around restrictive dietary intakes and by consulting with experts in occupational therapy, speech therapy and specialist teachers we have developed a group to support your child’s needs. View or download further information below.
