On Saturday 3rd September we will be taking part in the Kielder Challenge, the challenge is to get around the 25 mile route which begins at the North Shore. Not only is the route over 25 miles long it ascends and descends over 1,5000 feet over the course of the route!

We have chosen to take on this challenge to celebrate the fact that as an organisation we have been supporting Carers for 25 years. During that time we have seen many changes, the one constant during those years has been our commitment to support Carers throughout Gateshead. We support Young Carers from the age of 5 to 25. The adult services can support people all through their lives while they are caring.

We will continue to support Carers for as long as we can, we hope to be back celebrating 50 years’ service in another 25 years’ time!

Thank you in advance for your support, it makes such a difference to know that people such as you are supporting us in our efforts to improve the lives of Carers in Gateshead.

Wish us luck!!
