Tel no / email:  020 7803 1100 mmattingly@learningdisabilities.org.uk

What service do you provide:

The Foundation looks at how to change things that are not going well for people with learning disabilities and suggests ways to make them better. It does this by: 

  • research
  • reports or guidebooks
  • advice to other organisations to help make them better (consultancy, evaluations)

Who do you provide it for:

The Foundation works with people with learning disabilities, family carers and all the different kinds of services that provide support. This includes services that are for everyone, like GPs, the police and employers, as well as services that are just for people with learning disabilities. For example, learning disability awareness training has been provided to a liaison and diversion team and work is under way with a prison to map and develop prisoner pathways.

Respond provides community-based psychological assessment and treatment Services, training, consultation, clinical supervision and Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA). In a Circles of Support and Accountability the young person is matched with trained community members who meet with the person regularly for up to 18 months to provide support and hold them accountable.  They aim to reduce sexual abuse by reducing isolation and emotional loneliness, helping the young person to maintain responsibility and supporting them to live positively and safely in the community.

We travel all over the UK in order to train and sometimes assess individuals. We also have therapists based in schools in three London boroughs.

Children and Adults with Learning Disabilities, Autism and/or ADHD. Respond provides services for victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse and their carers. Respond also provides services for people who challenge services either by harming themselves and/or others and those with paraphilias and paraphilia-related disorders.

We are able to provide funded Circles for a limited number of young people aged 13-25, however Circles for adults are provided at cost.
