Learning Disability

Some people with a Learning Disability may not need our help but for others who do, a range of health and social care services are available Trustwide.

We assist adults with a learning disability to have control over their own lives and the support they receive, enabling them to live healthy active lives and thereby maximising their potential.

Services Available

Services are provided in a range of community and residential settings by multi-disciplinary teams.

Working in a Multi-Disciplinary Team

These consist of a group of professionals who work together to provide services to people with Learning disabilities and their carers in a coordinated, integrated way . The teams include:

  • social workers
  • community learning disability nurses
  • care managers
  • behaviour support nurses
  • psychologists
  • psychiatrists
  • speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and other Allied Health Professionals
  • Health Facilitator Nurse
