Westminster Learning Disability Partnership is a joint team of social care and health staff and is the first point of contact if you want to find out how to get support.
The team works with people with learning disabilities aged 18 and over and their family carers to identify where support is needed and how this can be provided in line with an individual’s person-centred plan.
Working closely with Children’s Services, the team helps support young people in transition as they move from childhood in to adulthood and are perhaps moving from Children’s to Adult’s Services.
Together, Children’s and Adult Services will share information and consult with the young person about their education, health and social care needs, as well as their goals and future employment opportunities. During this stage, the young person may wish to find out more information about direct payments and personal budgets to supports their level of independence and their ability to access other services.
Westminster Learning Disability Partnership wants people with a learning disability to have the same choice and control in their lives as everyone else in Westminster.
