North Tyneside Carers’ Centre is excited to be working in partnership with the North of Tyne Combined Authority, Newcastle Carers and Carers Northumberland to deliver a project to support young carers to return to work.

This is an exciting opportunity for young adult carers and adult carers to find work, training or education and access a range of routeways to local jobs.

Funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority, three Carers into Work Advisor’s will work with carers on a one to one basis across the North of Tyne to:

  • Provide support, advice and guidance to address any barriers they face returning to work or education.
  • Provide support to develop skills such as CV writing, interview techniques and support with job applications.
  • Match carers, where appropriate, with potential employers who offer ‘returnship schemes’.


This is a voluntary initiative placing our carers and their needs at the heart of the scheme and providing specialist support for carers to achieve their potential.
