Enabling people with learning disabilities to lead extraordinary lives.
“Liberdade is now a community development trust with charitable status."
Historically Liberdade has worked with the learning disabled community delivering training around arts and wellbeing. Since 2014 we have been working with the local authority and the local community to develop Gosforth Civic Hall as a community and cutural hub.
This step change came about due to our ongoing mission to include learning disabled people in wider society.
