Learning disabilities services
We care for and support people of all ages who have learning disabilities and associated needs, such as communication difficulties, autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities. Our person-centred approach helps you to reach your potential and develop your independence.
Our service is much more flexible than traditional services. Whether you want us to help you in your own accommodation, your family home or a supported living service, we match our service to your needs. We can support you for a few hours a week or 24 hours a day, or anything in between.
Technology that helps you stay independent and safe
We have a partnership with a leading telecare provider. This allows us to offer you additional services that:
- maintain or increase your independence, through personal support that combines equipment and technology
- help you stay safe at home or when you’re out and about, and
- help you to manage your medication and any special clinical needs, such as epilepsy.
Planning that’s centred on you
To develop your support plan, we'll work closely with you and, where appropriate, your family, friends, advocates and other professionals. The result is a plan that reflects your wishes and needs, and that targets the outcomes you want to achieve.
We regularly review your support plan with you, your family and your healthcare professionals, to ensure we're giving you the right level of support to reach your goals.
Working in partnership to get you the support you need
To ensure you receive all the support available to you, we work closely with social services learning disability teams, community health teams, housing providers and other community organisations.
Paying for your support
We can provide services to you whether your support is being funded by your local authority, by Direct Payments or by you.
