Who we are

We facilitate joint working between the public sector, our third sector members and a range of funders to improve the health, care and wellbeing of people in Newcastle and Gateshead.

We do this by

  • Holding or ‘hosting’ contracts for commissioners and funders that then enable our members to deliver services together. This not only helps our members to work according to their strengths and size, but also provides an approach to partnership working that provides commissioners and funders access to a range of providers in an equitable way.
  • Brokering relationships and opportunities between our members and with funders.
  • Providing a clear route to commissioning, acting as a single point of contact for our members and for commissioners to reach a diverse range of providers.
  • Developing supply chains within our membership to deliver high quality services together.
