Know Your Neighbourhood

Come along to an introductory session to find out about our brand new Know Your Neighbourhood project for people with learning disabilities and autistic people in South Tyneside.

About the project

Know Your Neighbourhood is funded by the South Tyneside Know Your Neighbourhood fund at Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland and is designed to help people with learning disabilities and autistic people develop their skills, confidence and social networks.

Running over eight weeks, the people who take part will be supported to plan and take part in social activities as a group so they can develop friendships and become confident at arranging social activities to prevent them becoming lonely or socially isolated in future.

How can I get involved?

Come along to an introductory session or get in touch with us to find out more. We'd love to hear from people who would like to join the project, either as a participant or a volunteer helping to run the sessions.

Many of the people who volunteer with Your Voice Counts have a learning disability so we welcome people with learning disabilities as volunteers - get in touch for a chat about how we could support you with this if you're interested.
