North Tyneside Carers’ Centre understands the importance of creating opportunities for carers. We can provide you with specialist support to help you maintain your current employment, find a new job or access training or education to help you move forward.

Carers into Work Advisors

 The Return to Work Carers Project provides flexible support to carers from the age of 16. We work with you one step at a time, to help you achieve your potential through:

  • One to one coaching
  • Identifying and addressing any barriers
  • Supporting with employability skills
  • Helping you understand your rights at work

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 Stirling, your Carers into Work Advisor at North Tyneside Carers’ Centre on 0191 643 2298, or email

We also have a Return to Work flyer and you can download this here

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