Resources

When taking control of your life, it is crucial to use all the information available to you. At Turning Point we know how important it is to work together with other organisations.

Turning Point's Health Toolkit

HEALTHTOOLKIT

We have worked with a dedicated team of nurses to produce the Health Toolkit. The document will be used as an aid to help our staff across our Learning Disability services provide the best possible care to those we support.
