**Covid-19 Information**

The Learning Disability Community Service would like to provide you with the most up to date information we have on the Covid-19 vaccine:

It is important to start preparing people with learning disabilities for having the Covid-19 vaccine. Please consider action plans and seek support for those who may need additional support; de-sensitisation, needle phobias, etc.

For those who may lack capacity in relation to receiving the Covid19 vaccine please liaise with families and GPs.  

Some additional Covid-19 information you may find useful:

Please feel free to circulate these documents to your wider service. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Our service

What is an Integrated Learning Disabilities Service?

We are a team of Health & Social Care Professionals (Norfolk County Council) who support adults with Learning Disabilities.

A leaflet about the Learning Disabilites service can be found here.

What is a Learning Disability?

A Learning Disability is a significant impairment in intellectual functioning combined with an impairment in social or adaptive functioning since childhood.

Information on learning disabilities is available on the NHS website.

The team offers specialist assessment, including diagnostic assessment of learning disabilities and autism.

Depending on what is needed the team work in different ways

  • Directly with the person
  • Indirectly – with carers and families
  • Jointly with other professionals    
  • Signposting and support to access mainstream services

Who we care for

Adults (people aged 18 and over) with a learning disability whose needs cannot be met by mainstream services. Individuals must be registered with a Norfolk GP.

Who we are

We are a multi-disciplinary team, this means we have lots of different kinds of professions.
An accesible information leaflet about the team can be found here
