Closing of learning disability service

My son had a letter today telling him the Nhs learning disability services are temporally closing due to coronavirus. This leaves 1000’s of patients high and dry with only the L.A. to contact in an emergency. Has anyone else received a letter like this to say their area learning disability service are closing?

Yes, we had a letter about this dated 31st March.


What was your son getting before at day services.

My son was going to a service and they now offer online activities via zoom.

I assume that you will still be having to pay them from your direct payment and if that is the case they should be setting something up on line.

Obviously I don’t know the level of

your sons disability so it wouldn’t necessarily meet his needs.

Any update.
