Beds, cots & accessories

This section of Living made easy for children provides information on beds, cots and accessories for children with disabilities.

Help and advice

When considering much of this bedroom equipment, an individual assessment with an occupational therapist will be required. Your child's safety in the bedroom is very important and there may be individual factors which determine which equipment best suits your child's needs.

The information on this site is not a substitute for individual assessment.

Some of the equipment listed here may be provided by your local authority, depending on their eligibility criteria. If your child is eligible, the equipment will be provided on a long-term loan basis. Alternatively, you may be eligible for a direct payment from your local authority to purchase something suitable.
