North Tyneside Carers' Centre

We are an independent charity and the only generic carer support service in North Tyneside supporting both young and adult carers. Our knowledgeable team supports carers with everything from advocacy to mental health through one to one sessions and peer support groups. We also provide specialist training and information sessions created by us to help make life easier for you and the person you care for.

Information for Adult Carers

Our Adult Carers Support service can help adult carers minimise the impact of caring on their lives by providing individually tailored advice, information, support and groups so they can meet other carers and share experiences.

Information for Young Carers

We provide young carers with practical and emotional support, activities for them to have fun and take a break from caring, opportunities to share their thoughts and influence positive changes for young carers.
