Community Learning Disability Team

Community based support for adults with a learning disability
Please note this service is currently under review and services are subject to change - this page will be updated as soon as possible but, in the meantime, please contact the team for information.

The Community Team for Adults with Learning Disability is based at Neath Hill Resource Centre and has health and social care professionals who offer:

  • Behaviour Support
  • Clinical Psychology
  • Community Nurses
  • Community Support Workers
  • Counselling
  • Dietetics
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychiatry
  • Social Workers
  • Speech and Language Therapy

Anyone can contact the team for help through the Access Team. Wherever possible the person being referred should agree to this. 

Every referral is discussed at a weekly allocations meeting to agree which part of the service would be most suitable to assess the individual. The purpose of the assessment is to identify appropriate support.

  • To be eligible for health services an individual will have a Learning Disability (iQ<70) and associated complex health needs which require the input of a specialist Learning Disability Service. 
  • To be eligible for social care support the individual will have a Learning Disability (iQ<70) and social care needs which meet the social care eligibility criteria (see the "Help from Adult Social Care" Section).

If our services are not right for you, we will tell you about places and people that can help.
