We need your help!
For 36 years Skills for People has been at the forefront of providing life changing services for disabled people and their families across Newcastle upon Tyne and the rest of the North East.
We support disabled people of all ages and their family carers to improve their wellbeing and health, to lead rich and independent lives and to overcome the challenges they face. Most of our work is with people with a learning disability, autism or complex support needs.
Our relocation to 4 Glendale Terrace in Byker represents a once in a generation opportunity to help around 2,500 extra learning-disabled people per year with advice, information, advocacy, training, guidance and support – all to improve their mental and physical wellbeing and increase their independence.
It puts us within easy road reach of people from South-East Northumberland and North and South Tyneside, it is a flexible space that will allow a greater range of activities and it is cheaper to run than our old building – meaning more money for direct services.
