Carers into Work

We understand the importance of creating opportunities for carers.

Training for Carers

We understand that caring for someone one who cannot manage without your help can be valuable and rewarding, but without the right support it can have an impact on your health, job, finances and social life. We want to help make carers' situation easier and so we have joined up with Carers UK to offer a wide range of digital tools and useful resources. If you are a carer looking after someone in Newcastle you can access the Digital Resource for Carers here.

Young Adult Carers

Our Young Adult Carer Worker, provides information and support to carers aged 18-25who are looking after someone living in Newcastle. 

Young Adult Carer Support Group -  taking time out of your caring role can be difficult but we understand how important this is for your wellbeing. Joining our Young Adult Carer Support Group to connect with other people can be a great way to do this.  

Watch our #WeCareToo animations - four short animations showing the real-life caring experiences of young adult carers.

Young Carers

Young carers deserve the same opportunities as all children. Our aim is to reduce the negative impacts of the caring role, using a whole family approach.  We provide individual and group support for young carers, as well as advice for their family. 

Group Support - our Young Carers Groups are a great chance for carers to come together and meet other people with similar experiences and make new friends
