On Wednesday 1st June, Turning Point’s Learning Disability Service in Tameside celebrated its first anniversary supporting individuals in the community to live as independently as possible.

People supported by Turning Point attended with their Support Workers and families, along with local councillor Brenda Warrington.

Steve Winfield, Area Manager at Turning Point said: ‘Over the past year we have worked hard to raise the standards of the service and have improved support provided by staff. By doing so, the people we support are learning new skills to help them live more independently.’

Andy Callow, Head of Operations at Turning Point said: ‘I was delighted to attend and be part of the celebration. Turning Point has been embraced with open arms and it’s great to see people enjoying their lives to the full.’

The Tameside Learning Disability Service provides support to adults in Tameside. Turning Point takes a person-centred approach to the care they provide, meaning people are supported in a way that suits them.
