Our Gateshead

Volunteer Carers Knowledge Panel

Description of what will be involved: 

If you currently have a caring role you may like to join our knowledge panel which meets to discuss important issues affecting carers.

Your views and feedback are essential in helping us to shape our wellbeing offer, for example introducing new topics as part of our Personal Development theme for our Care to Share guided discussions.

The panel will also be invited to share views and feedback on our online communication channels, like our website and Facebook page as well as our regular newsletter ‘Care to Know’.

Your knowledge will help ensure that we provide the right information and at the right time.

Perhaps you may like to be one of our Media Spokespeople sharing your knowledge to help other carers in Gateshead!

All we ask is that you can commit to being on the panel for one year and are able to get together four times a year.

The aim is for the panel to regularly change membership and to have a core membership of 12 volunteers.
