The Dementia Advice Centre is a brand-new service for people living on Tyneside looking for effective, coordinated support or information about living with dementia

Designed to fill a gap in community-led services for people who have been newly diagnosed with dementia, as well as the friends, family members and carers of long-term sufferers, the new Centre is a joint venture between not-for-profit organisations, Dementia Matters and Newcastle Carers.

Based at Newcastle’s Outer West Library, the Dementia Advice Centre is open for people to access a range of dementia specific services, from information about day care and respite services, to specialist clinical assistance from the dedicated on-site Admiral Nurse.

Funded by The Ballinger Charitable Trust and the Lloyds Bank Foundation, the innovative Centre comprises a dedicated reception area, a hot-desk area for ‘drop-in’ advisers, an informal discussion area as well as two confidential consultation rooms for private conversations with our dedicated advice team.

Opening hours:

Monday: 10.00am – 4.00pm                                                 Tuesday: 10.00am – 4.00pm                                                 Wednesday: 10.00am - 4.00pm                                           Thursday: 10.00am 4.00pm                                                   Friday: 10.00am - 4.00pm
