Disabled Children Register

Buckinghamshire Additional Needs Database (BAND) is the the voluntary register of disabled children and young people (aged 0 to 19). 

The purpose of BAND is to build a picture of need across the county to help the Council plan and improve local support and services for children and young people with SEND and their families.  

Buckinghamshire Additional Needs Database

By joining the register parents, carers and young people are eligible to request a Max Card, a leading discount card, which can be used at venues across the UK to get free or discounted admission.

The child or young person does not need to have a formal diagnosis to join the database.
