Access the right care in Leeds

Just like everyone else a child or adult with a learning disability needs help to reach their full potential. We all know what makes us happy and what our dreams and aspirations are, people with a learning disability are no different.

1.5m people in the UK are impacted by a learning disability. Although Autism is not a learning disability, of the 700,000 on the autism spectrum around 50% have a learning disability. At CareBIG we understand the right care and support can make a huge difference. By enabling independence, happiness and choice, we improve people’s lives.

Most people with a learning disability were born with it or developed it shortly afterwards. It can cause them to have a difficulty understanding, learning and remembering. This makes it harder for them to learn new things, communicate and sometimes perform certain tasks.
