Community Learning Disability Team

Specialist help is available from the Community Learning Disability Team to enable adults with learning disabilities to achieve more in their lives. The service supports people who live in Brighton, Hove and Portslade.

Our goal is to help people with learning disabilities to experience full citizenship of the city by making choices, having increased opportunities, and taking more control about:

  • where to live
  • what to do during the day, evening and weekend
  • being healthy
