Learning Disabilities

"Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability". Mencap

A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities which affects someone for their whole life.
People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people.

What we do

We help people with a learning disability live a happy and fulfilling life.

We provide assessment, treatment and support to help them live as independent a life as possible.

Some people with a learning disability need full time care. Our specialise nursing home, Granville Court provides a home to enable people to have a life well lived and loved.

Sometimes, someone with a learning disability may need to come into hospital to receive further treatment and support. Our team at Townend Court provide the treatment and support to patients and their families to enable them to return home.
