Newcastle Carers is a local independent charity working citywide to provide dedicated confidential information and support to adult unpaid carers who are caring for someone living in Newcastle.
What is a carer?
A carer is someone looking after a friend or family member who is ill, disabled, has mental health problems or is misusing drugs or alcohol, and could not manage without help.
For example, they may be looking after a parent with dementia, a partner who has suffered a stroke or a child with a learning disability.
Our main Centre base is on Shields Road in Byker, Newcastle upon Tyne, and here we provide a range of information and support services. We also provide a range of services around Newcastle city, including the areas of Gosforth, Lemington, and the West End of Newcastle.
