Lead the Way supports people with a learning disability and their carers to find, or ask for, the right services to meet their needs.

Stripped back, Connecting People is just as the name suggests. The project works across North Halifax and wants to connect people and their neighbourhoods together. We have a particular focus on connecting those who are lonely, isolated or perhaps left out. We work primarily, though not exclusively, with those 50 years old and over. We work with community groups to enable accessibility for people who might not find it easy to connect. We are also available to support groups to become the best version of themselves. We recruit volunteers from the community to support this work and to equip the neighbourhood to support itself.
Connecting People want to support neighbourhoods to celebrate what they have and to connect with each other. Through the process of creative and mutual conversation people will have the opportunity to rediscover the joy of living in neighbourhoods.
Amanda and Roger lead this project and are based in the Halifax office and can be contacted through Lead the Way.
Self-advocacy is about being involved, speaking up and making a difference as a group.
Calderdale Self-Advocacy Network groups meet in Todmorden and Halifax.
You can see the Calderdale Self-Advocacy Network's own website here, and the poster here.
