Adult Learning Disability

Outreach services

We provide outreach services to adults with learning disabilities who live at home. This includes emotional, social and practical support for the individual as well as their families and carers. We provide individuals with the support and advice they need to live full and independent lives in their own homes.

We respect their individuality and their right to choose, and we create care and support plans that reflect each person’s wishes and circumstances.

I can’t say how much I appreciate the service – both in going the extra mile for my daughter and advising me on the way forward and to help my daughter on the first step of living independently.
