Learning disabilities

Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability purple circleA learning disability is when an individual has a reduced ability to understand information. Individuals with a learning disability can also find it difficult to communicate and it can affect their independence. People with learning disabilities can have difficulty with everyday tasks such as household chores, managing budget and even socialising.

Here at Voyage Care, we can support you to achieve these tasks and more. Whatever you’re doing, whether at home, going out, finding education or employment, we’re committed to providing exceptional care and support for you.

We’ll work with you and your support network to create your support plan and involve you in choosing your support workers, providing you with staff who understand you. We provide specific learning disability training for our staff to ensure our care and support meets your needs.
