Havering Learning Disability Awareness Week

Friday, June 08, 2018

The Havering Community Learning Disability Team will be holding an event with partners and other agencies on 20th & 21st June in the Romford Shopping Hall, Market Place, Romford, as part of Learning Disability Week.

The Health & Well-Being theme is aimed at raising awareness about the services on offer from this team across Havering for clients aged 17yrs – 65yrs+ with a Learning Disability. The multi-disciplinary team will also be available on those two days to offer advice and information on the services provided.

Due to inequalities faced by people with a Learning Disability, especially around health treatment. It is the aim of the Learning Disability Team to work to improve this or eliminate it. For this reason they have health professionals who are trained in Learning Disability to ensure they understand the particular issues that affect them, are able to communicate effectively and ensure that their families (carers) are involved in any decisions made around their health. 

Please share this information to individuals, organisations and groups that would be interested in this event.
