EveryDay Care & Support professional home care services

EveryDay Care & Support is run as a social enterprise which means that it's services are all chargeable and any profits we generate are donated back to our charity owners to help fund vital services for older people.

We support customers aged 18 and over to live independently within their own homes. No two people are the same, which is why all of our care plans are tailored to support the individual hopes and aspirations of each customer. Please click here for further details.


Telephone Befriending

Age UK North Tyneside Telephone Befriending is there to offer you a friendly chat over the phone a couple of times a week.  We can match you with one of our volunteers who will phone you twice a week at a fixed time, and we will do our best to make sure that’s the same person each time so you can grow a real friendship.

We have a number of volunteers already checked, trained and ready to call and more volunteers registering with us on a daily basis.  Just give us a call on 0191 280 8484 or click here to get the ball rolling.


Healthy Habits

Healthy Habits is a free long term programme designed around you and your health and wellbeing goals.

Taking that first step can be daunting, which is why we offer both peer-to-peer support sessions as well as one to one support from our Healthy Habits team.

Whether the changes you are wanting to make are big or small, we can help.

If this sounds like the programme for you, please call 0191 280 8484 or click here.


Will Writing

With the kind support of local solicitors, Age UK North Tyneside organises charitable Will Writing Events. These are one-to-one confidential meetings between you and the solicitor who has agreed to support our charity. By reducing their usual fee, charged to you and donating all of the proceeds back to us, this benefits both you and ourselves.  Call 0191 280 8484 (Option 0) or click here.
