Community Team for People with a Learning Disability (CTPLD)
Adults with learning disabilities and their families/carers who are resident in the Bracknell Forest area and/or registered with a Bracknell PCT GP are able to receive support from the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD). We work closely with other agencies including statutory, voluntary and private organisations.
How do we work?
We are a joint team and provide a coordinated service which is based at Amber House, in Bracknell. We have a weekly meeting where individuals are referred to the most appropriate professional within the team who will then assess eligibility for the service. We aim to hold regular reviews to monitor input and to ensure that the client and their carer receives the best possible service from us.

- A care management team

Referrals to CTPLD
When we receive a referral the individual is discussed at a team meeting. If the decision is made that support is needed a member of our team will visit you and discuss whether you feel we can help.
