What are the Community Learning Disability Teams?

We can support adults with a learning disability whose health needs cannot be met by other health services in Oxfordshire.

The team has lots of different skills to help you. There are occupational therapists, learning disability nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and speech and language therapists.

We can offer support with lots of different sorts of health:

  • Your body (Physical health)
  • Daily living skills
  • Eating and Drinking
  • Medications
  • Behaviour, thoughts and feelings
  • Memory difficulties
  • Communication
  • Comfort, breathing, and how you move (Postural, respiratory and mobility assessments)
  • Developing a personalised care and support plan

We will help you until you reach your health goal and then we stop working with you. If you have another problem, or if the problem comes back, you can be referred to us again.

There is a team in North Oxfordshire, South Oxfordshire, and Oxford City.

How can I use this service?

We support the health care needs of adults who:

  • have a significant impairment of intellectual functioning (i.e. an IQ under 70), and
  • need significant assistance with day-to-day living skills, and
  • have a recognised learning disability.

Telling us that you would like support is called a referral. A referral can be made by anyone: see our page on getting support for more information.
