Additional Information

Our service covers the Bournemouth area. The service has a range of easy read leaflets available. The team includes staff who are experts in supporting people with Learning Disability, including Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Psychology and Psychiatry. We also work with other health and social care teams to help them support people with a Learning Disability. Our rooms are wheelchair friendly and we also visit people in the community. We work with young people and the children’s teams to help them get ready for adulthood following their 16th birthday. An assessment is then offered by the Transitions Social Worker following their 17th birthday. The Social Worker will work alongside the Children’s teams and all other relevant workers from health services and education. The assessment competed will be holistic with consideration to health, education and social care needs and will take consideration of the views of all those concerned with the young person’s care. Should the assessment identify ongoing needs all options will be considered to determine the most appropriate viable support before making a proposal and reaching a decision.
