Later Years Support

Our National Lottery Community Fund project, ‘Tomorrows’, supports people with learning disabilities / difficulties, living in North Tyneside, who are growing older and have minimal or no support. The project provides light touch support, helping people to maintain their independence, health, well-being and safety.

We want people to feel more confident, build self-esteem and develop new skills. We also want people to better understand and support their own health and well-being, develop their social networks by taking part in our many organised activities.

Examples of support include:

  • How to access services

  • Signposting for advocacy

  • Increasing knowledge around health and well-being

  • Health checks and medication reviews

  • GP and hospital appointments

  • Learning and leisure opportunities

  • Budgeting, bills and other correspondence

  • Developing social circles

  • Information on safety in the community

We welcome referrals from health or care professionals, friends, neighbours, family members or of course people themselves. A member of the team will then make contact to arrange a visit and find out how we can help.
