Cambridge City: downloadable guides are available via the website Cambridge City Council
SCIP (Special needs Community Information Point), Pinpoint and Living Sport have joined forces to produce an Activity Passport. We each provide services for families who have a child with additional needs or a disability in Cambridgeshire. This helps us to find out what we can do to make life a little easier. The Passport can hold information about a child which families need to share with activity providers such as sports clubs, girl guides, scouts or family fun days etc. Parents can add information about their child’s likes and dislikes, their medication and what to do in an emergency. Having the passport will mean you don’t have to repeat information every time your child goes to an activity. (You may be asked for additional information from the activity provider i.e. permission to take photographers) The passport is for families with a child / young person up to the age of 25.
Through SCIP you can also get a SCIP card. This is a wallet sized photo card which can help you to show your child/young person has a disability or additional need, if they need to use facilities provided for disabled people, or if you need to ask for assistance.
The Activity Passport and the SCIP card are FREE and can be obtained from the County Council
If you would like more information about the SCIP Card or Passport please contact the SCIP Coordinator. Email SCIP@cambridgeshire.gov.uk phone 01480 379827.
