    • SIGN, the specialist information service for disabled children and their families, has moved out of its base at Ryegate Children’s Centre. Following a successful bid for the revised SIGN contract, local charity Sheffield Information Link will continue to run the service, with the same range of information but without a drop-in facility. Instead the SIGN service workers will meet parents face to face through outreach sessions. Parents can contact the service using the existing telephone number 0114 266 9476 (Mon-Fri 10am-3pm) and email address sign@sheffinfolink.org.uk, or arrange a face-to-face meeting if needed. You can view and request some of the information held at SIGN on their new website at www.signdisability.org.uk.
