Help for people with learning disabilities

A learning disability is:

  • when you find it difficult to understand new or complicated information or learn new skills
  • when you find it difficult to cope on your own
  • something that started before you were an adult, and had a lasting effect on your development.

You may have a learning disability and think you need help, or know someone who has a learning disability who you think needs help.

The first step is to ask for an assessment from a social worker, to see if we can offer you a service that will help.
