We think it is very important that we work with families and carers of people with Learning Disabilities as they know the person best.
Each of our Community Teams work with families and carers.
Find out more information about how your Community Learning Disability Team works with Carers.
The Southampton City Community Learning Disability Team hold quarterly meetings throughout the year to consult and liaise with carers, to obtain feedback and ideas on our service.
The group also has a Facebook page, which shares relevant and useful information. This can be found by searching for Southampton Learning Disability Team Carers Group.

West Hampshire Community Learning Disability Service is dedicated to improving the service provided to adults with a learning disability.
We wish to develop our service and understand the importance of hearing carers views.
The East Hampshire Community Learning Disability Team produce a regular newsletter that goes to Carers which gives them useful information and key messages.
Carers are asked at clinical assessments if they wish to be added to the distribution list for this newsletter. For more information about information for carers please contact the East Hampshire Community Learning Disability Team.

North and Mid Hampshire Learning Disability Health team covers Basingstoke and Winchester area. As a team, we are continuously improving our links with family carers and we are now excited to share that we have two Carer Champions within the team. The Basingstoke area champion is Fran Lloyd and for Winchester it is Marta Coates. If you would like to speak to either champion, you can do so by calling 01962 764560.
Our aim is to ensure that carers can provide us with feedback about the service we provide. This is then shared and considered in how we work in the future. (We of course do this for service users too!)
In addition, to help us with our service developments, we are also planning to set up ad hoc sessions locally as and when further work arises. If you would like to be contacted in these developments, please let us know.
If you can’t attend any groups but you would still like for your views to be included in our work, let us know and we can contact you on the phone or via the email when applicable.
We also develop Carers Newsletter every three months.
