Community Outreach

Here at LD:NorthEast, we know how important it is to live life to the full. Our Community Outreach activities support people with learning disabilities and other needs to do just that. We offer an alternative to the more traditional building based day services as we know this doesn’t work for everyone. Our support helps people to keep healthy and active, feel included in the community and spend time with friends.
