We support children with a diagnosed learning disability, their families and carers. The team consists of qualified Community Learning Disability Nurses.

We provide an holistic assessment of need prior to undertaking interventions alongside the family this is enhanced by the use of specific behaviour assessments, health assessments, and risk assessments.
