Harrow Community Learning Disabilities Team is made up of health and social care professionals from Harrow Council and the NHS. It provides specialist health support to enable adults with learning disabilities aged 18+ to be healthy, independent and valued members of their community. The team also works closely with Harrow’s Disabled Children and Young People’s Service (0-25) to ensure that young people under the care of this team make a successful transition to adults’ services provided by the Harrow Community Learning Disability Team.
We provide assessment and treatment to people in their choice of environment, whether that be in their own home or an alternative community setting such as a local clinic, school, college, day service, supported living, residential setting, care home. Sometimes, if people are very unwell or troubled, people will be seen in hospital.
The team includes:
- Social Workers
- Community Learning Disability Nurses
- Speech & Language Therapist
- Behavioural Therapist
- Occupational Therapists
- Reviewing Officers
- Challenging Behaviour Specialists

In future, people with mild learning disabilities in Harrow will have the same access to health care as any other member of the community. They should only need to access specialist learning disability services when their needs are very complex or their degree of learning disability is such that specialist services are required
Our team is available to attend local disability group meetings, where we can explain more about the changes and how the transfer of care is taking place.
On Monday 9 December 2019 the Harrow Community Learning Disability Team integrated with Harrow Social Services and moved to the premises of the Harrow Civic Centre.
CNWL staff are all based at the new premises and clinics operate out of here.
