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.

Who is this service available to?

The team works with people with learning disabilities aged 18 and over and their family carers assessed as eligible for social care funded provision.

The clinical team works with adults with a learning disability living in Westminster with an assessed need.

When a young person turns 18 there is a change in Government legislation. At 18 the young person becomes an adult and in the eyes of the law they are seen as an individual in their own right.This has an effect on the services the young person will receive, and how these are provided.

At this stage, it is your child’s needs which are assessed, rather than the needs of the whole family. Once your child is 18, services they receive will be arranged by the council’s Adult Services department.

How do you access this service?

"

Decisions about who should receive social care funded services are based on an assessment of the risks to both immediate and long term independence.


The Adult Services department arranges services for those who are e assessed as eligible for social care funded provision. If your child is assessed and not eligible for council services, the assessor will suggest some other services that might be able to help you.
