Learning disabilities

How we can help

We have 2 teams which specialise in learning disabilities.

Our teams undertake visits to understand individual social care needs and investigate what support can be provided.

We also help people in the community in receipt of social care support and people in residential care by:

  • looking into safeguarding concerns
  • undertaking enquiries
  • completing regular reviews

The level of support an individual needs will vary, depending on their circumstances, but we may be able to help you with things like:

  • a work placement
  • paid employment
  • a volunteering opportunity
  • access to leisure activities
  • new things to learn at college or through adult learning courses

We will also look into safeguarding concerns, undertake enquiries and complete regular reviews for people in receipt of social care support and people who reside in residential care. 

How others can help

How to get support

We can give you information, advice and guidance to help you remain independent. Where you may require additional help we can assess you to see if you have eligible needs or to review your current care package.
