Tower Hamlets Community Learning Disabilities Service
The service is a team of health staff and social workers who assess and support people who live in Tower Hamlets with a learning disability, their families and carers.
We can meet you at home, at your college, or day service.
We help people to be as independent as possible by offering advice, therapy and practical support. We can direct you to other services that can also help you.
Our team is made up of health professionals, social workers, managers and administrators.
You will meet with two members of the team to help us do a single assessment, to decide if you have a learning disability and what help you need. The meeting can be at our offices or at home, at your day service, college or school and will take place within 28 days of your referral.
