A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life.

People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people.

Learning disability support

The level of support someone needs depends on the individual.

For example, someone with a mild learning disability may only need support with things like cleaning the house. However, someone with a severe or profound learning disability may need full­time care and support with every aspect of their life.

Our carers provide vital physical and emotional support to help our clients and their families.
