About Our Service

The Learning Disability and Autism Safeguarding Team sits within the Corporate Services of the trust. We are a part of the Mental Health and Learning Disability/Autism Safeguarding Team.

Our Team covers the whole of Manchester University Foundation Trust which includes Oxford Road Campus, Wythenshawe Hospital, Trafford General and North Manchester General.

We are an advisory service for all adults aged 18 years + who have a diagnosed Learning Disability and/ or Autism.

Our Drive is to empower staff throughout the trust to be confident in working with patients with Learning Disabilities and Autism and to be able to deliver efficient and effective personalised care to these individuals.

In order for staff to do this our team offers advice and support, we also offer the opportunity for training, both on a grand scale, targeting all areas of the trust and on a bespoke scale which is more specific to particular areas.

We are a new and expanding service and are keen to support staff in any way possible, feel free to contact us for any more information about our service or to enquire about support and training opportunities.
