Learning Disabilities

COVID-19 service update: all services running as normal. Both virtual and face-to-face contact available.

We work in partnership with local councils to provide health and social care support for people in Dorset with learning disabilities.

Our Community Learning Disability Team can offer practical help with physical and mental health problems, relationships, behaviours and communication, as well as advice on issues such as finance, employment and housing.

We employ specialist nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers and speech and language therapists. And we work closely with families, carers and GPs to ensure the care and support we provide is tailored to the needs of the individual.
