Once we have received your referral we will check to see if you are eligible for the services of the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD). If you have not had a CTPLD eligibility assessment before then one will be offered to you.
If you have been referred for social care you will also require a National Eligibility Determination Assessment (NED).
These two assessments are usually completed at the same time.
We will offer you an appointment with two members of our team to complete these assessments. You are welcome to bring someone with you to help. The assessments can be completed at your home or at another place to suit you.
The assessment will take up to an hour and a half to complete and then we will write to you to let you know the result.
If you are not eligible to receive services from the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD) but are eligible for services from Social Care you will be referred to the most appropriate team to arrange further support.
