Partnership working

We have a great track record when it comes to working with partners to deliver quality services in Gateshead.  And during 2014-2015, we worked together with our partners on a number of projects that made a difference to individuals and communities. 

  • We’ve introduced a multi-agency safeguarding hub in Gateshead to support vulnerable adults (including victims of domestic abuse).
  • We established a Land of Oak and Iron Landscape Partnership to work towards delivery of a four-year project, starting in 2016, with support from the National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund.
  • Winlaton and Chase Park Community Bases supported people with learning disabilities to tackle the issue of Hate Crime in joint partnership with Northumbria Police.
  • The North East Making Smoking History Partnership is supporting the Gateshead proposal for a national scheme to require the licensing of the wholesale and retail supply of tobacco.
  • Through the Speakeasy project with health and arts team colleagues, artist led activities created a resource for families and young people to use to better understand awareness and ways to improve their sexual health.
  • The Financial Inclusion Network informed agencies of the rollout of Universal Credit in Gateshead (June 2015) and shared new initiatives such as partners developing self-help guides.
  • Over 3,350 energy efficiency improvements, including central heating boilers and insulation measures have been delivered across the Warm Up North Partnership.
