Support for adults with learning disabilities
At Bracknell Forest, we have a specialised team that looks after people with learning disabilities.
This team is called the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD).
Who do we support?
We support adults with a learning disability. Carers who are resident in the Bracknell Forest area may also be eligible for support.
We will carry out an assessment of both individuals and carers wherever they have needs, regardless of whether they are expected to be eligible for support from the council.
What support do we give?
The support we provide covers a wide range of needs and includes:
- a carer assessment and support plan
- physical health issues
- mental health issues
- person centred planning
- community integration into mainstream services
- support with housing problems
- communication skills support
- new skills development
- approaching adulthood
- independent advocacy
- signposting or referral to relevant services
