Training and Invitations to Talk

We are happy to come along to a meeting or event to give a talk about carers and how we can support carers in Newcastle. We are also available to provide training to professionals about carers and support available. There may be a small fee for providing training but please contact us to discuss. 

If you would like to find out more, please Contact us.


Research and Carers

We are committed to providing high quality services to carers, and recognises that this can involve conducting research. We believe that best practice involves stakeholders in research from project inception stage to dissemination and implementation. 

We are keen to be involved in research that directly relates to and benefits carers, and to support carers to be involved in research where appropriate. As a charitable organisation, we ask that any staff involvement and resources are fully costed into research budgets wherever possible. Without this, we are generally only able to give limited support.

If you are a researcher interested in involving us in your research, we would very much like to hear from you. Please contact Rachel Parsons, Training and Development Manager, to discuss. Email [email protected], or call 0191 275 5060.
