Am I eligible for support?

To be eligible for support you must meet all the following criteria:

  • Families who have a child aged 0-15 years with conditions such as: cerebral palsy; epilepsy; autism; or another chronic disability related to a neurological condition
  • Children who are hospital in-patients, and their families - admitted under any paediatric team. Clinicians should be confident that the child is sufficiently medically well for the social prescribing intervention to be appropriate at that time
  • Living in the North East/North Cumbria area
  • Children and their family are willing to consent to both the intervention and the evaluation.

If you think you are eligible for the pilot and you would like to join it, please speak to the clinician at the Great North Children’s Hospital who is supporting you. If appropriate, they can then refer you to the project.
