Before applying for a care needs assessment you should get a formal diagnosis for a learning disability. You can find more information on the Kirklees NHS adult learning disability health service web page (opens a new page).
They can be contacted on 01924 316714 or you can email them at swy-tr.kirkleescommunityLDhealth@nhs.net
You can also speak with your GP about getting a learning disability diagnosis as well as going onto the GP's Learning Disability register.
GPs can use a form to identify if a young person should go on the GP's Learning Disability register. If a young person is put onto this register it is not the the same as getting an learning disability diagnosis.
Access to learning disability services will be based on needs. Your GP can explain this in more detail.
If you have social care needs, but don't have a formal learning disability diagnosis you can still contact Kirklees Council Gateway to Care to apply for a care needs assessment. The assessment will be completed or passed to the care management team for the area where you live.
You can contact Gateway to Care on 01484 414933.
