Carers into work

Newcastle Carers understand the importance of creating opportunities for carers. We can provide you with specialist support to find work, training or education to help you move forward. 

Carers into Work Advisors

Three Carers into Work Advisors are available to work with you on a one-to-one basis across the North of Tyne to:

  • Provide support, advice and guidance to address any barriers they face returning to work, training or education. 
  • Provide support to develop skills such as CV writing, interview techniques and job applications.
  • Match carers, where appropriate, with potential employers who offer ‘returnship schemes’.

This is a voluntary initiative providing specialist support for carers to help achieve your potential.

If you would like further information, or to start accessing support, please contact Ave, your Carers into Work Advisor at Newcastle Carers on 0191 275 5060, or email [email protected] 

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the North of Tyne Combined Authority, North Tyneside Carers’ Centre and Carers Northumberland to deliver this project.  

Online sessions

We have now launched online sessions tailored specifically to help carers to return to work. The sessions are relaxed, welcoming and supportive covering a range of topics relating to caring and employability. 

The sessions will be delivered virtually.
