Who are the Community Learning Disability Team?
We are integrated within North Lincolnshire Council and Rotherham Doncaster South Humberside NHS Foundation Trust (RDasH). We work to provide better services for people with learning disabilities. We support people who have a substantial learning disability with more complex needs. We have support from the best teams available from social workers and disability nurses, to occupational therapists.
We work to support young people into adulthood following the transitions pathway. Transition from school or college is a time of opportunity, change and challenge for all. A social worker from adult services will start to meet and get to know you from the age of 14 (but no later than 17). This will depend on your level of need and the support you require. For further information please contact the team.
How can I be referred?
Anyone can be referred to the community teams for advice, information and support. It may be you, your family or someone you know, for example your doctor (GP) or a member of the practice.
