Here at LD:NorthEast we work hard to bring people together. We tackle isolation and feelings of loneliness by supporting people to have fun, spend time with friends and feel good about themselves by looking after their health & wellbeing.
Sport and physical activity are a great way of bringing people together. Our Healthy Connections project is designed for people to build social connections and confidence through a regular programme of sports activities and to support manage their own health by overcoming barriers people with a learning disability often face.
Our Healthy Connections Project has funding from NHS Charities Together to manage this project and share learning across all areas of the North of Tyne. Our activity workers are funded through the North Tyneside Council- Better Together Group, North Tyneside VODA and North of Tyne CCG to help tackle Health Inequalities across North Tyneside.
Tackling health inequalities is a key priority to us, we are delighted to deliver this program in North Tyneside
