During the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Learning Disability Teams operated a reduced service. We have now restored services and will endeavour to remain open and available to service users, families and paid carers.
We are accepting referrals for clinical work. Examples of referrals that will be considered for support include:
· Safeguarding concerns
· Changes or events in the person’s physical or mental health that cannot be supported by mainstream services
· Placement breakdown concerns related to complex / challenging needs
· Emergency hospital admission avoidance or imminent discharge without care plans in place
We are now also offering telephone advice and guidance pre-referral. This can be accessed by contacting your local community learning disability team – whose contact details can be found on the local Learning Disabilities team pages.
The Community Learning Disability Team recognises that the people with a learning disability are at increased risk of COVID-19 and there are accessible resources available to support you.
