About LD:NorthEast

Our Vision

Our vision is for equality and social inclusion so people can live their life their way.

Our Mission

Supporting people with learning disabilities to have fun, spend time with friends and feel good about themselves, from birth right through to older life.

We are a local charity engaging with people who have lived experience of learning disabilities, learning difficulties and autism. We work across North Tyneside and currently reach around 700 people, of all ages.

Our work is about bringing people together. We aim to tackle social isolation and the effects of loneliness by supporting people with three of the basics we feel are important to happiness and well-being.


We organise a wide range of activities and events, many of which are free to access and are all about having a good time. This includes taking part in games, sport, dance, music performance, days / nights out, attending events and anything else based on what people tell us they want to do


We help people to develop and maintain friendship groups by organising activities, social groups and informal drop-in support to bring people together. We also help those needing one-to-one support to access their community and take part in everyday tasks and activities

Feel Good

We support people with health appointments as well as activities that support positive physical and mental well-being. These include dance classes, music and singing, relaxed art and craft sessions, healthy cooking and eating and sport
