Learning Disability Services
Some people with a Learning Disability may not need our help, but for others who may have additional health care needs, or require support, the Belfast Trust offers a wide range of health care services specifically aimed at adults with a learning disability.
We want to assist adults with a learning disability to have control over their own lives and the support they receive, enabling them to live healthy active lives involved in their local communities.
Services are provided in a range of community, residential and in-patient settings by multi-professional health care teams
- Residential And Supported Living
- Day Services
- Respite Services
- Community Treatment Services
- Muckamore Abbey Hospital
Working in Multi-Disciplinary Teams
Many learning disability services are provided by Multi-Disciplinary Teams. These are groups of professionals who work together to provide services to people with Learning disabilities and their carers in a coordinated, integrated way . The teams include:
- social workers
- speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and other Allied Health Professionals
