PWLD Wiltshire Intensive Support Service (LDWISS) is integrated with the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD).
We provide support to adults across Wiltshire with a learning disability, behaviour that challenges and/or mental health concerns.
If you, or someone you care for, are referred to our team, we will carry out assessments to determine the support you need. We will also work with you and the people who care for you, to put together a crisis management plan.
We provide three main services:
- intensive intervention - providing intensive support to gather observations, data and to monitor your mental health.
- crisis response – providing you with support within 72 hours if you are in crisis, to prevent placement or hospital admission.
- consultation – our team will work with the support staff, family or other professionals to provide you with advice and guidance.
We aim to prevent hospital admission and ensure that you, or the person you care for, stay in your own home for as long as possible. If you do require hospital admission, we work alongside inpatient colleagues to ensure that you are discharged from hospital as soon as possible.
Our service operates Monday to Friday between 8 a.m and 8 p.m. Outside these hours, we provide phone advice and liaison.
PWLD Wiltshire Intensive Support Service works with individuals aged 18 years and over with a diagnosed Learning Disability and at risk of placement breakdown and/or a hospital admission
The individual must be eligible for services provided by CTPLD and have a registered GP in Wiltshire.
Referrals are made through the CTPLD.
