The Tomorrows Project

Our National Lottery funded Tomorrows Project supports people aged 50+ who have a learning disability or difficulty, who are living in North Tyneside and have little or no formal support. The project provides low-level preventative support to help people maintain their independence, manage their own health and wellbeing and keep safe in their local community.

With a user-led approach we support people to develop new skills, build their confidence and access additional services to help them live well in their community. We also support people to better understand and manage their own health and well-being, and grow their social circles by taking part in our many organised activities.

Examples of our support include:

  • Signposting support to access services

  • Improving knowledge around health and wellbeing

  • Support to attend health checks and medication reviews

  • Support to attend GP and hospital appointment

  • Budgeting, bills and other correspondence

  • Information on staying safe in the community

  • Organised social activities

“My sister had just died. I’d lived with my sister in her house for 17 years. She was my carer. When she died I was so upset. I was told I would have to move out of my home as I wasn’t able to live there any more. I fell apart, I had no one to turn to, I really didn’t know what to do.

The Tomorrows found me a lovely flat and helped sort out my benefits they even helped get removal men. I now go to the print and art sessions and have friends. I don’t know what I would have done without their help.”
