Getting a taste of what the North east has to offer! Every year we organize trips out to various places and activities.
A scheme to encourage businesses and services to sign up to being a safe place for people with a learning disability to go to if they are in any way distressed.
Golf made fun, by using specially designed clubs, Velcro balls and targets we play in teams and individually and giggle our way through games that require very little skill just a good sense of humor and the willingness to join in.
We worked to create a short drama around the Safe Places scheme with the Cyrenians, Freedom from Torture, Northumbria University, West End refugee service and St John the Baptist Church.
