Community Support Service

LD Awareness provides support for people who have additional support needs. Our community support workers (CSW’s) all have years¬† of experience of supporting people who have learning disabilities and / or autism.

We will support you to access your community, leisure and social opportunities on a 1-1 basis.


A Community Support Worker will support you to:

  • Make choices to do activities that you are interested in as well as thinking about new interests.
  • Use leisure services that can help you feel healthier and confident.
  • Think about voluntary employment opportunities and support you to do things that interest you.
  • Support you with skills that can help you become more independent.
  • Find out about training courses you might like to do and learn new skills.

We believe everyone should have a go!!

When you have support from LD Awareness a CSW will:

  • Spend time to get to know you and ask you how you want to spend your time.
  • Find out from you, your family and carers what you enjoy and what is important to you.
  • Ask you some personal information that will help us get to know you and help us plan the right support for you.
  • Plan a timetable that will show you how we will spend time together.
