Who is the service for?
We work with children and young people from birth to age 19 who need help to improve their functional ability and mobility. We also work with parents and carers to support this improvement.
What we do
We support the physical development and abilities of babies, children and young people and aim to help children develop their functional ability and mobility within their own physical limits.
We aim to enable children and young people to achieve their movement potential; identifying their needs as prioritised by the them and their family.

Information and signposting
You can find information about the physiotherapy service in the resources section, as well as more help via external links.
The Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists has produced a range of information leaflets on a range of conditions and topics commonly referred to children’s Physiotherapists for advice and support. This includes physical development and postural variations such as flat feet or in-toeing, walking patterns or general concerns.
An advice line is available for three hours every Thursday for parents or other professionals to ring for any advice or referral information. Dial 07917 393196 on Thursdays between 9am and 12pm. Therapists also attend some community early years groups to answer questions and give advice.
Targeted support is available to any child on our motor coordination pathway and those with Global Developmental Delay.
We provide various support groups to help children and young people. We also provide training for parents and professionals on topics such as postural management and specialist equipment.
