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 Available

Services are provided in a range of community, residential and in-patient settings by multi-professional health care teams

Working in Multi-Disciplinary Teams
