Bee Together!

Are you aged 50+?  Do you have a Learning Disability?  Do you feel lonely?  Would you like to get out more?

Bee Together would like to help.

We would first like to ask you questions about how you feel and about the difficulties you have getting out.  Do you have someone to go out with?  Do you know what things are going on?  Then we will put you in touch with people who may be able to help you do the things you want.
