Carers Week team on the Ferry with crew
25 June 2018

The Shields Ferry has played a part in supporting Carers’ Week 2018.

Staff from the North Tyneside Carers’ Centre set up an information stand on board the ferry and took time to speak to passengers about Carers’ Week and the support available to them from both North and South Tyneside.

CEO, Claire Easton said: “We are delighted with the response we received from both individual carers and employers.  I particularly want to thank Nexus for allowing us to display our banners on the ferry landings and to allow our staff to travel, free of charge on the ferry to promote Carers’ Week. We really appreciate their support.

“If you live in South Tyneside and you are caring for someone who lives in North Tyneside, North Tyneside Carers’ Centre is able to support you.

“If you would like to find out more about the support we can offer you, you can contact the Centre on 0191 643 2298 and speak to one of our duty workers. Or, for information on all the services we offer, please visit
