The children’s community occupational therapy service provides equipment on an assessed and needs led basis to children and young people at home. The equipment provided is to enable occupations and participation in daily life. The equipment is provided through the Integrated Community Equipment Store. Read more about the criteria here

As part of the assessment process we may ask service users to trial commercially available options prior to the provision of more specialist items

The occupational therapist will also support in the assessment of equipment funded by special and mainstreams schools.

The areas we will look at for equipment is seating, bathing, toileting, hoists and slings.
