North Tyneside Carers’ Centre is an independent charity, with a board of trustees and around 22 employees and 25 volunteers. We were established in 1994 and we were invited to join the Princess Royal Trust for Carers, a network of 144 carers’ centres operating nationwide. The patron of the Princess Royal Trust for Carers is Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne who officially opened the centre in May 1996 at Neptune House in Wallsend.
Carers are involved at every level of our organisation including policy and service development and are represented on the board of trustees, our staff team and volunteers. Our core services are:
- Carer support team
- Young Carers support team
- Carer Respite project
We run a number additional services that offer carers a range of high-quality services to help them look after their own health and wellbeing, and cope better in their caring role.
With a range of business and commercial skills, and some of them carers themselves, our trustees are committed to developing and supporting the work of North Tyneside Carers’ Centre.
