Welcome to LD:NorthEast

We are a local charity supporting people who have learning learning disabilities across the North of Tyne area. Our work is all about bringing people together. We believe that everyone deserves to have fun, spend time with friends and feel good about themselves and we support people to do just that, from birth right through to older life.

Our vision is to achieve equality and social inclusion so people can live their life their way.

Launch of our New Healthy Tomorrows Service!

This week we are very excited to launch our brand new Healthy Tomorrows Service in partnership with the North West North Tyneside and North Shields Primary Care Networks.

Our Health & Wellbeing Coach Michelle and Care Co-ordinators Lesley & Mandy will be working together to act as the first port of call for patients with learning disabilities and GP surgeries across the two networks. They will be supporting more people to attend annual health checks, medication reviews and screening appointments, as well as working with people to help them look after their own health & wellbeing.

Look out for our next blog to hear more about the work we’ll be doing
