What we do
With over 6,000 carers registered with us, Newcastle Carers is a vital and trusted source of advice, information and support for carers across the city. Since registering as an independent charity in 2012 we have grown and developed significantly, providing a range of person-centred and holistic support to carers of all ages and improving the quality of their lives.
Our services are tailored to carers individual needs including a Carers Information Line, drop-in advice sessions, one-to-one appointments, counselling, complementary therapy, a variety of group support, information via our website and social media as well as specialist projects, such as our Carers into Work project.
Every year carers of all ages benefit from our grant scheme. The Carers Wellbeing Fund awards thousands of pounds in small grants to enable carers to improve their own health and wellbeing.
Partnership work with schools, colleges, universities, Job Centre Plus, GP practices, Social Care, employers and many voluntary sector organisations to increase awareness, promote good practice and encourage referrals is at the heart of everything we do.
We work with carers by providing a space to talk and be heard, helping carers to make well-informed choices to move forward. We increase visibility and recognition of carers; locally and within national strategic developments. We believe every carer should have access to professional support, information and guidance.
We are here for carers whatever the road is ahead.
