Learning Disability Day Service - Strathy Close

We are a Council run day service for adults with learning disabilities who need a high level of support - including help with personal care where needed.

The team work with individual service users (and their carers) to develop a personal support plan that includes their preferred activities and supports them to develop skills, knowledge and self-esteem to help maximise their potential.

The Service offers a programme of interactive, sensory and physical activities that helps develop independence, promote a healthy lifestyle. They make good use of nearby sports and leisure facilities to increase choice and ensure a community presence.

Referrals are accepted from social workers, people with NHS Continuing Healthcare funding and self-funders.
