Community Team for People with a Learning Disability (CTPLD)
The Community Team for People with a Learning Disability (CTPLD) is a team of social care and health staff who work together to provide support and advice for those with learning disabilities and their carers.
To access the services the team provides, you would need a assessment to understand if you meet Care Act 2014 eligibility criteria.
If a person is assessed as being eligible for social care then a 'person-centred' care and support plan will be agreed. Identified needs could be met through the provision of a Direct Payment enabling people to purchase their own support. It may also involve one service or a number of services being directly provided depending on what's needed.
The CTPLD includes:
- Community learning disability nurses
- Social workers
- Occupational therapy
