Projects Manager Julie said “so far we have worked with over 300 people growing older with a learning disability, many of whom are not known to the local authority and don’t qualify for support. People who literally had no-one in their lives now have friends and lives have been changed for the better. I’m so proud of what has been achieved by our small team of staff and volunteers.”
Referrals can be made to the Tomorrows project in various ways, whether that is directly by the person, a health or social care professional, by a friend or neighbour, or by a carer or family member. A member of the team will then make contact to arrange an initial visit, to meet and complete an Initial Assessment in order to best determine the appropriate support.
