Welcome to LD:NorthEast

We are a local charity supporting people across North Tyneside who have lived experience of learning disabilities, learning difficulties and autism. 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.
