Our Later Years Team support people aged 50+ with lived experience of a learning disability / difficulty and Autism.
We provide low-level preventative support to help people maintain their independence, manage their own health and wellbeing, and keep safe in their local community.
With a user-led approach we support people to develop new skills, build their confidence and access additional services to help them live well in their community. We also work with our Health Team to support people to better understand and manage their own health and well-being and grow their social circles by taking part in our many organised activities.
Our sessions are a minimum of 4 hours delivering support on a 1:1 basis or in a small group. This can be paid privately or through a personal budget. Support through LD:NorthEast has an added value of being able to join in our events , parties and social activities.
