Lead the way

Lead the Way was set up in partnership with Calderdale Council and Calderdale CCG to support people with a learning disability and their families and carers to have control of their care and to receive equality of access to services. It is a community-based advice & support service helping people to stay healthy and independent in their own community.

They support people and their carers to find the right services to meet their needs. They offer advice and information in ways that are easy to understand, and in a way that is best for you – this can be on the telephone, by letter or email.  They can meet you face-to-face if you prefer.

They can help with lots of different things, from finding support for you regarding employment, to finding places you can meet new friends and take part in activities. They hold groups in Calderdale around health and wellbeing.
