Local Linked Support provide short-term support in Braintree district and Colchester borough
for adults with a learning disability and/or autism and their carers
The Local Linked Support (LLS) team at Essex County Council works with the adult to meet their own outcomes through connecting with community resources and opportunities. We work alongside the adult to understand what is most important to them, supporting to plan the next steps to achieve their goals and aspirations. The LLS team offers short term support for up to four months to adults with a learning disability
and/or autism and their carers who are not in receipt of commissioned care and support through Adult Social Care.
A formal diagnosis is not required, though if the primary needs arise from a physical or mental impairment/illness, LLS would not be the appropriate referral pathway.
