The teams include a wide range of health and social care specialists such as: Social Workers/Community Care Officers, Welfare Rights Officers, Transition Co-ordinators, Supported Living Co-ordinators, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists and Community Learning Disability Nurses.
The health professionals within the team will provide information and advice to adults with learning disabilities covering a wide spectrum of health related issues. They are often best placed to provide supoprt and assistance in the end stage of an individual's life due to the existing relationships and knowledge within the framework of the CLDT.
At this often difficult but vital stage of an individual's life, the health focus of the team will be on supporting the individual and their carers to understand the processes involved and providing therapeutic interventions to assist with both the physical and emotional implications. They will be integral to the liaison amongst wider members of the multi-disciplinary team and to the facilitation of all required planning and implementation of the individual's care needs. The community learning disability team is available as a resource to the individual and their carers, to enable informed, considered and fairer access to health care at a time when it is needed most.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Public Health have commissioned a new and exciting website ‘Health for Kids’ which will be managed by the Youth Service. The website is due to be launched in January 2019.
Health for Kids is a health promotion website offering information in a fun and interactive way for primary school children, parents/carers and teachers. The website will offer local news on upcoming events, campaigns, blogs, articles and useful information about services available to children within Nottinghamshire. The website aims to help promote the health and wellbeing of children aged 5-11 years.
Moving forward, the Youth Service will also be managing the Health for Teens Website, which was launched back in January 2016. Health for Teens offers health and wellbeing advice and information to young people aged 11-19, promoting a healthy body and mind. The site provides local information on relevant services to signpost young people to within Nottinghamshire.
As a service we would like to inform you of how to contact us in regards to supporting the websites to ensure the information we include on the local pages is up to date and relevant for Nottinghamshire. For example, if you have an event you would like us to promote to children, young people, parents or carer, or if you have a campaign that is running locally we can publicise these on the Health for kids or Teens Website’s.
We would also like to request you to promote the relevant website to the appropriate age group through your service. We have a range of publicity material available electronically and a limited supply of hard copies.
Our head office is in Nottingham and we provide services primarily across the East Midlands (Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Northamptonshire) and neighbouring counties.
Enriching the lives of people who have dyslexia is at the heart of our charity. We enable dyslexic children and adults of all ages and backgrounds and help them to live happy, productive lives and reach their full potential.
Our team of dedicated, caring individuals provide professional advice, screening, assessment, training and tuition as appropriate because we know one size does not fit all. Each person is different and knowing this is what makes the difference. We help you understand your strengths and find the solutions to whatever challenges you may face.
If you are dyslexic, or think you might be dyslexic, or if you are concerned about another person, we can help.
We receive no government funding. We rely entirely on the support of fundraisers and generating income through the sale of our services, to fund our free Helpline and advice services.
