Learning Disabilities


St Anne’s has been providing services for people with learning disabilities since 1985 and provides a range of services to enable people with a learning disability to live as independently as possible in the community.

St Anne’s can offer a range of options include: Supported Living, Floating Outreach support, registered care homes and registered nursing homes.

We currently have services in Leeds, North Yorkshire, Calderdale, Kirklees, York, East Yorkshire, Middlesbrough, County Durham, Sunderland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Gateshead and Bradford.

St Anne’s services also include a day centre in Huddersfield for people with profound disabilities and Leeds Shared Lives, whose aim is to recruit carers who can offer a permanent home to an adult with learning disabilities. This used to be called adult placement and is now called Shared Lives.

Respite services are available to people with learning disabilities who live in Calderdale and Kirklees.

Our service is about much more than providing people with somewhere to live. St Anne’s supports people to achieve their goals and aspirations through, for example, opportunities for training, education, work and other daily activities.

We are able to support people with diverse range of needs and we can offer a flexible range of support.

Our registered services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission.


Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, Durham, Middlesbrough and Leeds care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.

This message will be updated regularly
