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.
