Newcastle City Council Adult and Culture Services want to help older people to live safely and independently in their own home for as long as they can and want to. They may be able to help you if you are over 65, live in Newcastle, and have difficulty looking after yourself because of an illness or disability. Read their information on social care services for older people to find out about support available and how you can get it.
Newcastle Older People's website InformationNOW can also help you find out about where to go for advice and support and what services and activities are available for older people in Newcastle.
If you are aged over 50, you could also fill in the First Contact Newcastle checklist to get additional support from a number of reliable organisations who could help you to stay safe, healthy and independent in your own home.
The National Careline is a national not for profit company which offers information about care and support for older people, their carers and their families. The aim of their website is to give information which will help you to understand the system of care for older people living in England.
On this page we have included a selection of organisations that can provide support, advice and services, sometimes free of charge, to all older people. However, if you are interested in seeing a full list of organisations that provide services locally and are approved by Newcastle City Council, please click here.
