Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group (NGCCG) and Gateshead Council have been working together to look at how we can better support our informal Carers of Gateshead regardless of the age or condition of the cared for person. 

We have already engaged with Carers of all ages and professionals about Carers needs.

As part of the next stage of the review, we need to find out if there is anything missing from the service aims.

We would like to hear from:

  • Organisations and the Voluntary Sector which have links with and currently support informal Carers across Gateshead
  • Health and Social Care professionals
  • Employers which support working carers
  • Educational representatives who support Young Carers and Young Adult Carers in Schools/Colleges
