Tenfold provides specialist support in Leeds to the area of Learning Disability. We have built up excellent working relationships with partners in the third sector, with the council, including care management teams and commissioners, and with colleagues from across all areas of health services in the city.
We work in ways that ensure service users’ voices are heard and that services are designed to be person-centred and tailored to priority and individual needs.
We support collaboration and networking across our membership and wider partnerships, and we deliver information, events and campaigns to raise awareness of the issues facing learning disabled people.
Tenfold is seen as the ‘go to’ organisation for learning disability information, knowledge and sign-posting in the city, and we are proud of our excellent reputation.
