Carer Advice and Support Groups - Newcastle - Suspended until we find a new venue

From 20th July then every 3rd Tuesday of each month

As you are aware Approach had to close all the Carers Cafés in March 2020 due to the Government lockdown for the COVID-19 pandemic and we re-opened them in July 2021 as Carers Support and Advice Groups with bookable appointments to speak to our staff.

We have continued to look at the situation and we have now decided to re-open the Carers Groups as they were previously in the café format from November 2021, 10.30am – 12.30pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available.

COVID restrictions, risk assessments and health checks will still be in place at each venue. Please do NOT attend if you have any symptoms of COVID.

These are drop in cafés as previously, but Carer Support and Advice Groups aimed primarily at carers who require help and support with either a new or existing diagnosis of dementia, we will also welcome anyone that may be awaiting a diagnosis or are experiencing memory issues.
