3.3.8 A Guide to Parent Carers Needs Assessments


A parent carer needs assessment aims to give parents/carers a chance to tell Children’s Services about the things that could make looking after their disabled child easier. The assessment focuses on the parent / carer and their needs, and seeks to identify sources of support.
