What we do

We aim to support the development of a competent local intellectual disabilities workforce, from support staff to experienced managers from a variety of services. By working in close collaboration with clinical services, we aim to improve the care of people with learning disabilities, especially those with additional mental health and challenging needs through evidence-based practice.

The Estia Centre is widely acknowledged as one of the market leaders in training and research in mental health and intellectual disabilities.  Our main aim is to promote competent and capable environments, to enhance clinical practice and reduce health inequalities for people with intellectual disabilities. The Estia Centre is based at the Maudsley Hospital in London, and is an integral part of local services for people with intellectual disabilities provided by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. We are also part of King's Health Partners, an Academic Health Science Centre which brings together high quality clinical services, education and training research to improve the health of people in South London.
