This week is #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek. The theme this year is Loneliness and its effect on mental health. Evidence suggests that mental health problems may be higher in people with a learning disability and we know that loneliness can be a real issue for people with learning disabilities. That's why our weekly clubs are so important for our members to meet up, socialise and make friends.

💬"Yorkshire 3 peaks conquered!

Such awesome weather to spend a day in the mountains. 🌄☀️🥾

Beautiful scenery, great company, some really hard slogs but amazing achievements all to raise money for a wonderful charity."💬

Community Fundraiser Nicky and her team of trekkers completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks in 10 hours 55 yesterday. They took on the monumental challenge of scaling three peaks over 25 miles in under 12 hours and absolutely smashed it!
