  • doing access audits,
  • campaigning about hate crime and accessible transport,
  • running taster activities and
  • leading on the Safe Places scheme in Newcastle so that people with a learning disability feel safe when using leisure facilities

In addition they offer activties for users:

  • cycling at different levels of achievement
  • golf
  • curling
  • tennis; and a
  • tidying gardens scheme

They support their members to attend conferences, meetings, outings and City Council activities such as the New Year’s Eve parade.
