We’re launching our new Carers Cafe in our hall at Carers Trust Tyne & Wear, The Old School, Smailes Lane, Highfield, Rowlands Gill, NE39 2DB. We have been busy promoting the cafe with leaflet drops and on social media.

The cafe will allow local people to drop in and have a chat with neighbours and friends in a warm, comfortable environment. Many people do not identify with being a carer so it is hoped that people will come who we would not usually reach. Informal support and advice will be offered with referrals to services when appropriate. The cafe will be free of charge with light refreshments being offered throughout the morning, however donations are always welcome.

We hope to see you there, doors open at 10am!
