Help for people with learning difficulties

Care management

We support, protect and improve your quality of life.


We give you a safe space where you can talk about your problems. It can help you to make your own decisions about your own life.

Occupational therapy

We look at your practical skills, like personal care or travel skills. If something is difficult for you to do we can talk about ways to make it easier


We can help you to move, sit and rest comfortably.

Community nursing

We can help you get the health care and treatment you need. We can also help you have a healthier lifestyle.


We help you to think about your feelings. We can help you to change your behaviour if you, or other people, are worried about it. We will assess your IQ if someone needs to know this.


We look after your mental health needs.

We help you with your communication, hearing, eating and drinking.

Behaviour therapy

We help you when you feel angry or when carers find it hard to understand why you are angry or unhappy.
