Help for people with learning disabilities

There is a wide range of support available to people with learning disabilities and their families and carers

We assess people's needs and, if they are eligible for help from us, we will develop individual support plans. We support everyone to be as independent as possible whilst making sure they are safeguarded from harm.

The links below contain information about our services.

Easy read information booklets

We have produced some videos of our service users and their families talking about how things like personal budgets, telecare, learning new skills and flexible support have improved their independence and confidence.

How to get involved

The main way of getting involved in discussion is through the Partnership Board and Local Implementation Groups. The Partnership Board representatives include 5 carers and 10 people with learning disabilities supported by advocacy. Board representatives often visit local groups for people in their area to talk about the learning disability plan promises.

The Partnership Board has 5 area groups called LIGs (Local Implementation Group). Transformation is just one of many topics that are discussed at the LIGs. An Adult Services representative attends these LIGS and can talk about the potential changes.
