Having a learning disability means you understand information and communicate in a different way. It may affect your ability to do things like working, learning or managing at home. You may find that other people don’t always understand you. We want to support you to live as independently as possible.

If you already have a specialist social worker, they will work with you to decide on the most suitable care and support for you.

If you have not yet spoken to anyone about your needs, find out how to get information and advice about care and support to ensure you get the help you need to live an independent and healthy life. If you are looking after someone with learning disabilities there is also support available for you.

Virgin Care Services Limited will provide the majority of the services previously provided by Sirona Care & Health from 1 April 2017. The services will still provide the same support, be funded in the same way and in most cases you will continue to see the same colleagues as you have seen before. If you have questions, please speak to the team from the service you work with – or you can contact Virgin Care’s Customer Services Team on 0300 303 9509, or by email: customerservices@virgincare.co.uk.
