Children with complex needs 

Children with complex needs under the age of five years old who have received a diagnosis and are registered with a GP in Southwark or Lambeth can be referred into the service. The team will accept referrals for complex needs children who would benefit from support around issues such as sleep, toilet training or behaviour. Parent(s)/carer of special needs children who would benefit from emotional support can also be referred into the service. 

The team receive referrals from the following practitioners:  

  • health visitors
  • occupation therapists  
  • paediatricians 
  • general practitioners 
  • speech and language therapists
  • physiotherapists
  • school nurses
  • paediatric continence nurses.

Referrals will be considered from social care and education professionals. We unfortunately cannot consider self-referrals.
