Our Services

St Cuthbert’s Care is a charity working throughout the North East to help improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of our communities including people with profound disabilities, children in care and older people.

Residential care for children

St Cuthbert’s Care has four 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 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 leisure 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 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.
