COMPUTER ACCESS FOR CARERS

Important information: Our building on Shields Road and drop-ins in are closed until further notice.  Staff are working from home and we will be offering the best service we can during these difficult times.

Our Carers Information Line is open as normal Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm. Please call 0191 275 5060 for information, advice or support.

At Newcastle Carers Centre we have two computers available for carers to use.

If you’re familiar with a computer you’re welcome to drop in and use them during our Centre opening hours.

When using our computers, we also have the facility to print (small charge) in black and colour.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide IT training or support. If you’re not confident with a computer Go Digital Newcastle has a list of venues that offer free computer training or support.
