Newcastle Carers, North Tyneside Carers’ Centre and Carers Northumberland are part of a project called Return to Work Carers, funded by North of Tyne Combined Authority.

Return to Work Carers Project provides specialist support to carers who want to access employment, education or training. The three carers’ centres are delighted to jointly launch an online training package which has been tailored for carers. The training package includes informative online factsheets and virtual sessions covering a wide range of topics around caring and employability.
