Young carers in Carers' Corner at the North Tyneside Carers Centre.

The theme of the week – from June 12 to 17 – is Building Carer Friendly Communities.

North Tyneside Carers’ Centre has helped organise a number of activities.

An open day will take place at the centre in the YMCA, North Shields, on Monday from 11am to 3pm.

The following day there will be a roadshow at the Beacon Centre, North Shields, from 11am to 3pm for carers to talk to staff.

Also on Tuesday an Inter-Generational Tea Party will be held at the centre from 5pm to 7pm.

Adult and young carers are invited to come together to share experiences, a laugh and a cuppa. Carers will be able to try their hand at playing a game of giant Jenga or Noughts and Crosses.

And for all budding DJs, North Tyneside Carers’ Centre is offering Young Carers a fantastic opportunity to join Digital specialist, Lindsay Duncanson at the Centre on Thursday for a FREE VJ/DJ workshop, from 6pm to 8pm.

This event is open to all young carers living in North Tyneside, aged 12 to 25, who are registered with North Tyneside Carers.
