Occupational Therapy

What is occupational therapy?

Within our community treatment team for people with learning disabilities we provide an occupational therapy service.

This service will help you to develop new skills for work or college, help you with activites you enjoy doing and help you with everyday tasks such as travelling, looking after your money and cooking.

If you want to discuss a referal and how you might get this support please call our initial response service on
