Community Learning Disability Service Health Videos

A series of videos has been produced to promote awareness of health services among people with learning disabilities.

The Angus Multi-agency Learning Disability Health Promotion Task Group produced five videos and supporting materials specifically for service users.

Each of the videos focus on one specific area, to provide accessible information about the range of health and social work services available across Angus.

The videos feature:

The videos will be available at a number of locations across Angus, where service users and their families can borrow the material, on a library loan basis.

Another video has been produced for professional workers in primary care and acute services, GPs, social workers, those involved in advocacy, voluntary organisations and other service providers to promote awareness of the health services available and the needs of the learning disability population in Angus.

Social Work & Health convener Glennis Middleton said: “These videos are a very positive contribution in the promotion of the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities in Angus.”
