Shropshire Council

Adults with learning disabilities

Community Services, in partnership with Shropshire County Primary Care Trust, offers a person-centred assessment and care management service to people with learning disabilities. Our services are designed around people. They reflect the needs of the people who use the service, their families and their carers. Services for adults with learning disabilities are offered following a care assessment, as long as you're eligible for services.

We aim to ensure people with learning disabilities have access to the same community facilities as everyone else. We offer residential, supported living and day opportunities for people with learning disabilities, as well as work experience, training and employment opportunities through Enable. Our Guide to Learning Disability Services explains more.

The Personal Relationships and Sexuality Policy for adults with learning disabilities has been written in partnership across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin to guide and inform practice in the area. The aim is to promote the rights and choices of people with learning disabilities while giving a policy framework for staff to work within during daily practice.
