COVID updates for Learning Disability Services

Milton Keynes Council has made the decision to keep day services closed until 26th February with a review on 19th February. If you are in receipt of a direct payment, please continue to pay your invoices. Any concerns, please ring the Learning Disability Duty Team on 01908 253772.

Recent Correspondence

To keep our service users aware of the changes to our services we have sent the following letters to all affected individuals:

What we are doing:

You will be aware from previous correspondence that our initial priority was to support the safe return to day service for those individuals living at home with family or on their own.  

We are now starting to look at those individuals in Supported Living.  As before, we will assess priority need and continue with the creation of small ‘bubbles’ within the day services. Over the next few weeks we will be contacting individuals and their providers to agree a way forward.

If you have any queries please call 01908 253772 and ask to speak to someone in the Learning Disability Duty Team.
