Learning Disabilities

BSL Support

We work with people aged 18 and over who have a learning disability, together with their families and carers.

What is a learning disability?

A learning disability affects the way a person learns new things in any area of life.

It can be difficult for a person with a learning disability to:

  • Understand new things
  • Learn new skills
  • Live independently
  • Communicate with other people.

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 getting a job.

Full-time care and support may be required for those with a severe/profound learning disability.  In some cases, people with a learning disability will also have a physical disability.

Support may be required in every aspect of their life, This can include:

  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Washing
  • Dressing
  • Toileting.

We support people with learning disabilities to live healthy independent lives and keep safe in the community.
