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.
We provide a range of support services to over 1000 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.
