About Tenfold

Tenfold supports its member organisations to improve services and opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

Our aim is to drive positive change. We do this by connecting people, sharing information, campaigning, networking and events and being passionate about what we do!

Membership

Tenfold has over 100 member organisations, all voluntary, community and faith sector organisations who work with and for people who have learning disabilities in Leeds.

We facilitate strong relationships across our membership by working across all sectors, using partnership working, facilitating collaboration, bringing members together and connecting with decision makers.

Work Priorities

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.
