Community Teams

The Adult Learning Disability Team (Community Teams) is a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) providing support to adults who have a learning disability to maintain and promote service users’ independence, safety and wellbeing within the community.

The MDT includes, Social Workers, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Sensory, Physiotherapists and Speech and Language Therapists, as well working closely as Learning Disability Psychiatry, Psychology and other specialist services such as the LD Crisis Response & Home Treatment Team and the LD Forensic Service. We also work with an Independent Advocacy Service, the Housing Executive and Police as well care providers and other agencies.

It is the case manager’s role to coordinate and facilitate MDT assessment to promote and ensure a holistic approach and shared decision making to care and risk management.  Case managers:

  • work with service users and carers using person-centred approach
  • undertake service user and carer assessments to identify how the Trust can support
  • respond to safeguarding concerns
  • commission services such as: domiciliary care, direct payments, residential and nursing home placement, daycare, day opportunities, short breaks
  • provide support/ guidance to service users, carers and their families

There are three facility locations  in Armagh and Dungannon, Banbridge and Craigavon and Newry and Mourne.
