If you are someone with a learning disability, a parent, family member, carer, or work as a care or health professional, then the Caring & Sharing Trust has developed this website just for You!
For the first time, information on the services and opportunities available for people with learning disabilities throughout Northamptonshire can be accessed from a single site:
There is so much out there to help people with learning disabilities to live happy, fulfilled and exciting lives. Here's where we hope you'll find all the info you need.
If, however, you are not sure exactly what services are needed or which opportunities would be most suitable, or if there are other complicating factors, the answer might well be to start by talking things over with a 'real' person. We can help with that as well.
You can also arrange to meet and speak to one of the new Caring & Sharing Ambassadors. These include people with learning disabilities, parents and carers who are able to provide experience, understanding and inspiration.
This web site was launched together with Caring & Sharing Trust Patrons: The Rt Hon Dame Andrea Leadsom MP, The Rt Hon Michael Ellis MP, Michael A Clarke BEM, Cllr Phil Larratt, Cllr Matthew Binley, Cllr Les Marriott, Cllr Malcolm Waters, Cllr Suresh Patel, Cllr Jamie Lane, Cllr Cecile Irving-Swift, Alderman Steve Coventry (Milton Keynes), Tony Ansell, David Aaronson, Tracey Ullman.
Thanks also to The Scott Bader Commonwealth for their grant which helped to get this project under way and to the Councillors who made donations from their empowerment funds.
