Reasonably Adjusted Project

The Estia Centre was awarded a grant from Health Education England to develop a co-produced resource for mental health staff about meeting the needs for people with an intellectual disability. We have employed an expert by experience to undertake this project with us.

Service user involvement and experts experience

People who use mental health in learning disabilities (MHLD) clinical services and their carers are encouraged and supported to join our involvement register and get involved in paid opportunities to shape and deliver services. The Involvement Register is a way for people who use our services and their carers to help us plan, develop and improve our Trust’s services. Many Involvement Register members say taking part has helped to build their confidence and skills.
