COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE
Leep1 is a self advocacy service for adults with a learning disability based in Leeds. We are pleased to announce that the Leep1 office has now re-opened.
Our service currently supports over 50 members and hundreds more have joined us online during the pandemic.
Members who have been contacted and assessed as safe to return are able to join in with our sessions and activities at our centre on Roundhay Road.
We are looking forward to reopening a full service as soon as it is safe to do so. In the mean time all our activities, sessions and training also happen online so all our members are able to join in.
To access our online sessions please visit our Facebook community @ Leep1 Group.
Anyone with a learning disability and/or autism is welcome to join.
If you need support to get online please email: email@example.com
ABOUT THE LEEP1 ONLINE COMMUNITY
“It’s where my son is happy” – N.Tauseef
“Leep1 Group is where we are like a big family together” – C.Ward
“My favourite things is that it feels like there’s something always going on. It feels like we are all together” – J. Booth
The pandemic is having a real impact on the lives of adults with learning disabilities. During these difficult times it is important that we stay connected, support one another and keep healthy. Joining the group offers members a daily routine filled with fun activities to boost mood and mental health. Many sessions also help improve digital and life skills.
The Facebook Group was set up at the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak in March 2020 and has proven to be a lifeline for everyone involved. So far it has over 350 people signed up. It’s not too late to join the group and we welcome any new member requests from the LD community.
Thanks to the Leeds Libraries tablet lending scheme and 100% Digital we have been able to provide tablets and iPads to the most isolated who are unable to access online services.
If you need support to get online and take part in our sessions please get in touch by emailing Mandy Haigh: firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on our website. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Leep1 Group on Facebook is a safe place where adults with learning disabilities can chat, make new friends, offer mutual support and learn skills.
There is a fun weekly programme of classes and sessions on Zoom and on Facebook Live to help you to:
- Stay Healthy
- Meet Friends
- Learn Skills
- Have Fun
