What We Do
At North Tyneside Carers’ Centre, we offer a various support to young carers, including:
- Practical and emotional support to young carers and their families around their role as a carer
- A much needed break and the opportunity to relax with their friends
- Opportunities to work on social action projects that can bring about positive change in both their own lives and the lives of others.
Our Family Support Workers work with young carers and their families to provide practical and emotional support.
We also have a Breaks and Activities Worker and a team of Sessional Workers that help young carers to take a break from caring, explore new activities and make friends with other young people who are in a carer role.
Our Social Action team offer young carers the opportunity to share their views and influence change for young carers. These projects are designed by young carers themselves.
