Learning Disability and Autism Service

The Learning Disability and Autism Service (LDAS) is an adult social care service.

We have a Head of Service and there are three team managers, one for the North, South and West teams. The teams are made up of social workers and social care practitioners.

Who do we work with?

We work with adults (aged 18 and over) who have a diagnosed learning disability and/or an Autistic Spectrum Condition who have social care needs. We may ask for confirmation of your diagnosis (for example, a GP letter).

We work alongside our colleagues in Wiltshire Health and Care Community Services, Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership, Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living, Wiltshire Service Users' Network amongst others.

We also work with our colleagues in Children social care when young people are preparing for adulthood and may transition from a Children's team to LDAS.

What do we do?

Care Act Assessments

An assessment looks at the things in your life that you can do and the things you may find more difficult to do yourself. You can have a family member/carer, friend and/or advocate with you during your assessment if you want or need to.

Information, Advice, Signposting

It may be there are groups and services outside of the council which may be able to support you. We will give you information about these and can refer you if you would like.

Support Planning

If you have eligible social care needs, we may complete a support plan with you to look at the help you might need to stay safe and achieve the things you want to. We aim to review your support plan with you at least once a year.
