The Learning Disability Care Forum does not have a permanent base at the Langdale Centre, this is the venue for care forum meetings only.

The Learning Disability Care Forum (LCDF) was established in 2014 to work with the council to improve learning disability services in North Tyneside.

Over the years, the Forum has worked on a wide range of activities including care support processes, housing and supported living, care quality monitoring, respite for carers and an engagement and communication standard. In addition to working together on specific issues, carers have found the Forum to be a valuable source of peer support and experience sharing.

The Forum has developed positive working relationships with carers and the council in order to do the best for people with a learning disability.
