Carer’s Champion Role

Updated on 12th June 2023 at 3:29 pm


North Tyneside Carers’ Centre

We are an independent charity and the only generic carer support service in North Tyneside supporting both young and adult carers. Our knowledgeable team supports carers with everything from advocacy to mental health through one to one sessions and peer support groups. We also provide specialist training and information sessions created by us to help make life easier for you and the person you care for.


Wideopen Medical Centre works collaboratively with the Carers’ Centre to support patients registered at the practice who are in a caring role.  We have a named Carers’ Champion at the practice called, Gillian Fenwick – part of Gillian’s role is to ensure carers registered with our practice are aware of the help and support available to them.


If you are a carer and would like to know more about how I can help, please contact me on 0191 2362115
