Advice Line Banner

The Children’s Occupational Therapy advice line is available for children and families with a Cambridgeshire GP, not currently known to our service.

Families can contact us to gain practical therapy advice, strategies and support in relation to a child’s functional and independence skills. 

We can help you with:

Self Care - Eating, dressing, using the toilet, washing.
Play -
Playing with toys and joining in with community events.
Learning Opportunities -
participation in nursery/school activities.

An Occupational Therapist will be available to answer queries from parents, school staff and health professionals. 

By providing early help and advice around Occupational Therapy issues, unnecessary referrals and wait times can be prevented. This can also be the first step in providing a family with practical strategies, before a referral needs to be made.

  • Child's name and date of birth
