Social Work Support

COVID-19 update


We are here to help

If you don’t have a children services social worker this may be for you.

Staying Connected is a helpline for children, young people and families in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust area who may need practical advice and who could be socially isolated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Staying Connected has been established to respond to the challenges associated with social isolation.

Trained social care staff will answer your call, offering you:

  • A listening ear
  • Support and guidance
  • Links to practical support and follow up service

‘Children with Disabilities services continually seek feedback from our parents and carers through user involvement and co-production opportunities. If you would like to leave feedback on this webpage please email comments to the below email address.

If your child is currently known to Children with Disabilities social work/nursing teams and you would like to express interest in joining our ‘Parent’s/Carer’s forum’ please email
