Surrey Together webtool activities for people with learning disabilities

Active Prospects have created a webtool for people with learning disabilities and/or their support workers to see what activities or events are available to them in Surrey. The webtool has been developed in partnership with Leonard Cheshire Disability and Reason Digital, and is based on the Together As One tool, which was originally developed by Leonard Cheshire in Wales and is now being rolled out in other areas of the UK. The webtool has been made possible by funding from Surrey County Council, and is free to use for providers and users.

If you would like more information on the webtool or how you can get involved, please contact marketing@activeprospects.org.uk
