Information for Adults with a Learning Disability
The Social Work & Specialist Health Service for Adults with Learning Disabilities supports people to be as independent as they can be and to only rely on professional social care services when their needs cannot be met in any other way.
The team supports all adults with learning disabilities to enjoy the same choices, rights, independence and control over their lives, whatever their disability, that people without disabilities take for granted. Citizens of Sutton who have learning disabilities are supported to remain in the borough of Sutton and to make full use of the facilities and services that are available for all people. Wherever possible, the team will help people to get support to be provided by peers, families, friends, communities or voluntary groups. If specialist services are required then these take the form of supported living services and community support services.
