We are excited to announce that we are running two social action summer schools over the holidays! Our social action projects are all about bringing together young carers who want to make positive change for other young carers in the community. Please note spaces on our summer schools are only available to young carers who are registered with North Tyneside Carers' Centre.

2018 signifies the 24th birthday of North Tyneside Carers' Centre.
To mark this anniversary, young carers came together to create a social action project. Using art and drama, the young carers devised a piece of issue based theatre exploring 24 hours in the life of a young carer as well a 3D interactive clock.
The aim of Project 24 is to deepen people's understanding of what types of care a young carer may provide. The young carers did this by performing their piece of theatre at the Live Theatre in February 2018 to key professionals working in North Tyneside.
The impact of the emotional support that a young carer provides can be overlooked when professionals consider a young carers’ caring role, and can lead to a young carer remaining unidentified.
After the performance, Norma Redfearn, elected mayor of North Tyneside, said: “The needs of our young carers have always been close to my heart and we do our best to make sure they fulfil their amazing potential.
“The performance at the end of Project 24 was incredibly powerful. I was touched by the honesty of the young people and moved by their stories.”
