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.
What can a CareBIG carer do to help?
All our carers are compassionate and caring individuals. You can use the search filters to find those with experience in working with people with autism, or those with a learning disability. Our carers are all different, but they all share our values of empowerment. They know the importance of individuality and identity, helping people to achieve independence through encouragement and choice.
