LD:NorthEast is looking for a volunteer that has a love of art to run art sessions for them. Have you time to spare and a hobby to share?
We are a North Tyneside based charity, supporting people of all ages who have a learning disability, many of whom have physical disabilities, mental health needs and often other challenges.
Our primary aim is to help the people we support to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, making sure they have access to opportunities many of us take for granted. We support people to make friends, have fun and feel good about themselves.
This includes taking part in activities that support health, wellbeing and safety and to help people live as individuals, being in control of everything they do.
For many, our support is life changing. For some, it's life saving.
