Welcome

Residential care for children

St Cuthberts Care has five children's residential homes accommodating young people aged from seven to 17 years.

We provide a supportive and a nurturing environment for young people who need a period of stability in their lives.

Foster care

Our registered fostering service, Fostering North East, recruits, trains and supports carers to look after children who are unable to live with their own families.

We are actively seeking short-term and long-term foster carers to help provide homes for children in need of a positive experience of family life.

Services for disabled people

The Alan Shearer Centre in Newcastle provides a range of recreational, social and respite facilities for people with disabilities.

The Centre provides short break care, a home for disabled adults with multiple needs and specialist free, therapeutic and sensory resources for people with complex disabilities.

Care for older people

We have two Catholic nursing homes for older people: St Catherine's in Newcastle and Holy Cross in Sunderland. Both homes provide professional nursing and residential care and offer specialist support to those residents who require dementia care.

Community Services

In addition to our care services we develop and run community projects for people who are living in poverty, older people who have become isolated and individuals and families in need. Our charitable work extends across our region supported through our enabling work with parishes.

Additional care services

We run a specialist day centre in Gateshead supporting people who have dementia, as well as a day centre in Ashington and a residential home in Alnwick for people with learning disabilities. We also support a number of adults with learning disabilities to enable them to live as independently as possible in their own homes.

Our work

As our work is highly specialised we engage and contract with a range of professional bodies and local authorities; this income, together with our service fees, pays for the cost of our care services, including our overhead.

We also provide community based projects, such as the 5p Bus, which are aimed at people living on the margins of society. These are paid for through our fundraised income and donations.
