Our Learning Disability Support Services provide essential person centred support for individuals by helping people with learning disabilities/physical disabilities and complex conditions to access to and continue education and development, live in their own tenancies, paid employment opportunities, life skills development and meaningful activities, achieve their desired outcomes and become more involved in their communities.

In the last few years we have also seen younger adults with autism (ASD) and behavioural supports (ADHD) transitioning from school. Autism is not a learning disability but in our rural areas there are few supports that adults can be signposted to. A lot of the people we support also have autism so many individuals are now supported by in-house registered location teams.

Our HSCP in house registered support services are SCSWIS (Care Inspectorate) registered providers in their own right.

Internal locations have multi-trained teams who often support individuals who are unable to be supported by anyone else due to complex issues. However we often identify people, who may be able to be signposted to our other community support networks or alternatives. We currently require a permanent 25 hour Support Worker for LOCHSIDE, Lochgilphead
