Community learning disability team (CLDT)

The community learning disabilities team is an integrated health and social services team. We offer a service to adults aged 18 and over who may need care and support because of a learning disability.

The community learning disability team offers: information, advice, support and assistance from social workers, nurses and doctors. A number of different therapies are also provided, which can support service users to live the lives they want and to optimise their health and wellbeing, and live as independently as possible.

We can help those who have a learning disability live in Barking and Dagenham aged between 18 and 65 and a young adult coming into adulthood. The CLDT team will carry out an assessment to see what kind of care and support may be needed. We will ask questions about the things the service user finds easy and hard.
