Teams Life Centre

Teams Life Centre is the new name for the old Teams Community Centre, based on Askew Road West in Gateshead. We are operated entirely by dedicated volunteers (even the manager!)

We run regular events throughout the week from high-energy workouts with Skinnypigs, through to Dog Training classes and BabyBloom with more being added regularly.

Our "New2You" Community Charity Shop is a valued asset to our centre, allowing you to purchase previously loved clothes, books, CDs, DVDs, toys and bric-a-brac at very reasonable prices.

Our community cafe is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm for an excellent selection of sandwiches, snacks and full meals, including a daily special (see separate Teams Life Cafe page). If you give us a ring, we'll even have your order ready for you to collect if you wish to take it away, or ready to eat to sit in.

We have different sizes of room available for hiring privately for parties, meetings or any other purpose at very reasonable rates. We even have our own bouncy castle and soft play equipment available for hire! See our page on the 'Rooms For Hire' section. 

For more information on Teams Life Centre, please give us a ring on (0191) 4781003 or pop in to the centre! You can also visit our website,, our Facebook page on or email us:
