Welcome to Well Newcastle Gateshead
Newcastle and Gateshead have some fantastic cultural facilities, from parks, museums and galleries to heritage and historic sites, plus dance, theatre, music and the visual arts.
We want to explore how we can use all these assets to improve the health and wellbeing of people across four of our communities. In Felling and inner west Newcastle we are focusing on working with children aged 2-7, their parents and grandparents with the aim of improving school readiness and in Byker and Chopwell we will tackle social isolation, mental health and low self-esteem in adults.
Well Newcastle Gateshead is bringing talented local artists, actors, dancers and musicians together with the voluntary sector plus health, education and care services to unleash the creativity in our communities. Everyone is welcome to take part and help us to build healthy, connected communities which are great places to be.
Here is a presentation about what we are doing in Well Newcastle Gateshead
