LD:NorthEast are a North Tyneside based charity, supporting people of all ages who have a learning disability, many of whom have other physical disabilities, mental health needs or other challenging conditions. Our primary aim is to help the people we support to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, making sure they have access to opportunities many of us take for granted. We support people to make friends, take part in activities that support their health, wellbeing and safety and to live as individuals, being in control of everything they do.
