The Learning Disability Community Support Service is split into three management patches that reflect the wider Council's organisational arrangements. There is also a small central team which leads on transformation work and which provides a variety of support functions.
Please see our External links section - we have 40 people with learning disabilities taking part in a sponsored walk on 17 June 2014 to raise money for Yorkshire-based charity Africa's Gift. You can also sponsor the walkers who are supporting people in need in Africa by following the relevant link and entering LD Sponsored Walk at the charity checkout.
We provide a range of support services to over 1,000 adults with learning disabilities and their families/carers through the:
- Supported Living Service;
- Fulfilling Lives Service; and
- Respite and Emergency Service.
The delivery of all our services is based on a thorough understanding of the needs and wishes of customers and their carers. This understanding is gained from working with customers in a person-centred way. We develop individual support plans following an assessment of each customer's needs and these are linked to risk assessments. We support people to be as independent as possible whilst ensuring they are safeguarded from harm.
You can find out more about our services, the Safe Places Scheme (places where people can go to get help in an emergency when out and about) and Changing Places (accessible toilets) by following the Related Pages. You can also read and download our Service Plans from the Documents section on this page.
