Learning Disability Partnership (LDP)
- If you have a learning disability diagnosis, we can provide health support
- We can also provide social care support if you need this higher level of help. Find out about social care assessment and eligibility.
With the right help, everyone with a learning disability can achieve their goals.
(For support for people aged 0-25 years with additional needs, see our information on the local offer)

We can provide short breaks so that carers can have a break.
Shared Lives scheme
Shared Lives provides short breaks within a family setting. The scheme supports adults to learn independence within their own communities. People can also be supported in a permanent placement.
Where a person decides to live independently, we make sure they have support to stay safe.
If supported living is not appropriate for you, we can help look into residential care.
Young adults team
The young adults team is part of the Learning Disability Partnership (LDP). The team supports young people with a learning disability from age 18 until they transfer to their local LDP team. This is likely to be (but is not automatically) at the end of formal education.
