For over 65 years we have worked throughout the North East helping the most vulnerable members of our communities. Our work is specialised, and it often tackles areas of unmet need that are either unattractive or considered to be too high risk for other providers. We focus largely upon:
- residential care for children
- short-term and long-term fostering
- specialist provision for people with profound disabilities
- care for older people
Much of our work is sensitive and emotive, reaching deep into people's lives. We engage and contract with a range of professional bodies and local authorities, and this income pays for the full cost of our care, including our overhead.
In addition to our care provision, we develop and run community projects. These span our region, targeting people who have absolutely nothing and supporting people who need the company and compassion of others.
Our fundraised income and donations pay for the entire cost of our community work.
St Cuthberts Care's work impacts on the lives of the most vulnerable, disenfranchised and dispossessed across the region. To find out more about our vital services download our leaflet.
