Peer Support Groups

You can often feel isolated as a result of your caring role and we understand how important it is to have access to emotional support and someone to talk to. We therefore deliver regular peer support groups across the borough of North Tyneside to allow you the opportunity to:

Because we understand how difficult it can be to access support for the first time, you will be greeted by a worker or volunteer who will make you feel welcome, offer you refreshments and introduce you to other carers. If you are unable to leave the person you care for to attend any of our groups, please contact the Centre and we will discuss the options available to you.
